As stated in the MGA Faculty Handbook, faculty seeking either promotion, tenure, or both must provide notice of this intent no later than the second Friday in April (April 10). Notice of intent must be sent via email to Provost Venn, the Dean of your unit, the Chair of your unit (if there is one), and to me, as Chair of the Promotion, Tenure, and Post-Tenure Review Committee. For example, a faculty member seeking tenure in the Department of Natural Sciences would direct an email to: Dr. Dawn Sherry (Chair), Dr. Ron Williams (Dean), Dr. Martha Venn (Provost), and Dr. Barry Monk (Chair of PTPTR). Please note that “intent to apply is no guarantee of eligibility – rather, it initiates the question of eligibility.”
Please refer to Section 4.06 (Criteria for Promotion) and 4.07 (Tenure and Criteria for Tenure) from the MGA Faculty Handbook for an overview of the process, and for questions of eligibility and time-in-rank. If you have further questions, please feel free to ask.
