Promotion Policy

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences has a policy to encourage the regular review of faculty potential for promotion. Each academic year department personnel committees should take the opportunity to discuss the potential promotion of any faculty member who is scheduled to submit a PMYR report that year at any rank less than Full Professor. In addition, the personnel committee is encouraged to provide feedback to the faculty member about prospects for promotion in the future. This policy does not bind the actions of the personnel committee, nor discourage discussion of any other promotion case at any time, but is designed to encourage a minimal standard for a regular review of promotion prospects.
