The dossier should be similar to the format described for promotion or appointment to Associate Professor. In addition, documentation must include evidence that the candidate has continued to grow in stature in the performance areas cited above or other evidence demonstrating professional growth and achievement commensurate with the rank of Professor. The candidate’s contribution to his/her field must include scholarly publications. Documentation must be provided of further accomplishment since the initial appointment or promotion to Associate Professor. Typically, an Associate Professor can be promoted to Full Professor based on excellence in two of the following three areas of Research, Teaching, and Service. Typically a time period of at least four years, from the time of being granted tenure, needs to have passed before consideration to promotion to Full Professor. Before a candidate will be considered for promotion to Full Professor by the Executive Committee, the candidate will first be discussed by the current Full Professors in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Division to determine if they should be considered for promotion.
- Dossier preparation
1. Dossier including CV
2. Request of outside letters of evaluation (typically require 6)
3. Division Chair’s summary
Note: All documents should be submitted to the Executive Assistant to the Dean at least one week prior to the Executive Committee meeting for posting on the web.
- Voting Procedure
All Associate Professors will be excused from the Executive Committee meeting of the School of Pharmacy. Advisory members (CHS and Clinical tracks) at the Full Professor rank are invited to attend and participate in the discussion, but a particular quorum of advisory members is not required. Two thirds of Full Professor Executive Committee members (tenure track) must be present to conduct the review. After presentation of the dossier and discussion, an advisory vote will be conducted by the advisory members, followed by a formal vote by the tenure track members. Voting in both cases will be conducted by a signed paper ballot. Two-thirds of the tenure track members present need to vote in favor in order for the vote to be considered a favorable recommendation for promotion. The review/vote will not be conducted if the quorum of members is not present. The Dean will provide the results of the Executive Committee action along with the Dean’s assessment within 5 days of the Executive Committee meeting.
