Faculty Promotion Committees

The dean consults with division chairs and associate professors to constitute a 3- 4 person promotion committee and to name a chair, which is intended to review the professional dossier of an associate professor who is being considered for promotion to full professor.  Chairs of faculty promotion committees or designees bring recommendations to the Executive Committee for approval. 

Compiling all the materials for school-level review for promotion to full professor, including solicitation of outside letters, is the joint responsibility of the promotion committee chair, the division chair, and the associate professor.
