Promotion and Tenure Seminars
Spring 2014

The Office of Faculty Affairs is hosting a Promotion and Tenure Seminar series. Although the workshops are focused on pre-tenure faculty, the events are open to any faculty member seeking promotion and any other members of the UIC community involved in the P&T process.

During each workshop, the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs presents procedural issues of the review process, important policy information, and other information relevant to professional development for pre-tenure faculty. The information presented is cross-disciplinary. A workshop for underrepresented faculty is provided as well as a workshop aimed at post mid-probationary, pre-tenure faculty. Each workshop also contains a panel discussion and an opportunity for Q & A with faculty. Panelists include senior faculty and recent members of the campus P&T committee.

All sessions will include a review of the relevant promotion and tenure processes and will cover topics including the mid-probationary review, preparing the dossier, research expectations, teaching, and service. The seminars will provide a forum where experienced faculty will provide information, share their personal trajectories, and offer advice for potential candidates to position themselves for a successful promotion and tenure process. They will also provide a valuable opportunity for candidates to ask questions about preparing for promotion and tenure review. The events are designed to help faculty members in their plans to seek promotion.

RSVP's are not required, and these seminars are open to faculty from all parts of campus. Parking stickers will be available at the check-in table for those who wish to park in visitor lots. For more information about the seminars, contact the Office for Faculty Affairs. Questions about the Promotion & Tenure process and guidelines should be directed to Faizan Abid at fabid2@uic.edu or by telephone at (312) 996-2706 (6-2706).
