A commitment to faculty success

The Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs strives to create an environment where faculty at Indiana University Bloomington can flourish.

We provide a wide range of resources for faculty—from recruitment to retirement—with the aim of developing faculty careers, enhancing productivity, and cultivating academic leadership. We also define faculty rights and responsibilities on the IU Bloomington campus, and work to foster a nurturing campus climate.

Spring 2022: External Reviewer Invitation Template

When contacting external reviewers for any promotion or tenure case, it is important to make sure that campus policies are reflected in the request letter. The original template for the invitation letter can be found on the last pages of the Guidelines for Tenure and Promotion Reviews at IUB and the Guidelines for Promotion Reviews for Research, Teaching and Clinical Ranks at IUB. We have provided a version of these letters with the mandatory language updates regarding clock extensions and COVID impact; one for tenure-track and one for non-tenure-track.
