Preparation of cases for consideration by the advisory committee on tenure, promotion, and personnel:
The recruitment and retention of an excellent faculty is a top priority for Arts and Sciences at Washington University. The promotion process is an important part of this effort and must be done carefully. What follows below are the guidelines for chairs preparing cases for the Advisory Committee for tenure and for promotion of individuals already tenured, and for appointments to positions with tenure of new faculty. Adherence to these guidelines will make the work easier and expedite the review process. However, they are not meant to restrict the material that the department submits in order to strengthen the case.
Third Year Review Guidelines
A third‐year review is an important process that helps both untenured faculty members on the tenure track and their departments gauge progress and calibrate planning. In some cases, it will provide the opportunity to correct course, and in other cases it may provide the opportunity to acknowledge accelerated progress toward tenure. This is a process intended to provide more opportunities for support and feedback for tenure track professors as they prepare for tenure. Dossiers are due to the Dean's Office on February 1, 2024.
