UMSL’s Tenure/Promotion Procedures and Guidelines for Preparing Dossiers: Guidance from the Senate Committees for Chairs of Departments and Ad Personam Committees
Members of the Senate ATP and NTT Promotion Committees clarify areas of the UMSL Tenure and Promotion Procedures that are often misinterpreted, and offer wisdom about preparing dossiers that provide committee members with the information they need, in a format they can easily grasp. This colloquium focuses on reviewing the procedures that kick into action after candidates file their initial factual record, alerting responsible faculty to frequently-made mistakes, and providing hints about what committee members look for in a dossier. Co-sponsor: Faculty Senate.
