Promotion and Tenure Resources



From Faculty Focus:

From the Chronicle of Higher Education:

  • Tenured Twice by Amy Jones. One woman's story of recognizing that her first department/institution was not a good fit – just as she received tenure there – and her decision to pursue a position somewhere that would be a better fit.
  • Road Signs to Tenure by Miguel Mantero. Compiled advice from six tenured professors. Also, Were the Road Signs Wrong? Miguel's retrospective article as he comes up for tenure, written two years after the previous article, analyzes and responds to the earlier advice.
  • Shameless Self-Promotion by James Lang. "Given the unsupervised nature of much of what we do in this business, I am really in the best position both to describe and to evaluate my work most effectively," explains the author.
  • How First-Year Faculty Members Can Help Their Chairmen by Gene Fant, Jr. Suggestions for being proactive, from a department chair.
  • Keeping Your Research Alive by Rick Reis. How to make your research a priority, in the face of other, more urgent (but not necessarily more important) demands on your time.

From Tomorrow's Professor:

  • Promotion, Tenure, and the Engaged Scholar by Gelmon and Agre-Kippenhan. Valuable to consider for all faculty: create clear narrative of your work and its contributions to the mission/strategic plan for the university, college, and department. Start early and spend time on preparation, writing, and adherence to policies and guidelines.
