Review procedures for promotion from Lecturer to Senior lecturer
The transition from existing procedures to full campus review has been delayed for one year. Lecturers who are undergoing promotion review in the 2020-2021 academic year will follow existing procedures. Those undergoing review in subsequent years will undergo campus-level committee review and must follow review timelines accordingly.
Review materials for tenure and/or promotion dossiers for all faculty
The Online Course Questionnaire (OCQ) was not mandatory in the spring 2020 semester and, thus, will not be required in tenure and/or promotion dossiers. Given the range of school and unit-specific approaches to garnering feedback during the spring 2020 semester, faculty who have feedback data in any format may include this in the dossier if (and only if) they wish to do so.
External Review letters: We understand that the current circumstances may create unusual challenges. If you have questions about securing reviewers, using letters from a promotion process that was interrupted or other issues related to external letters, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to take questions.
Mid-term reviews (the “third-year review”): We recommend that these in-depth reviews be delayed if an extension has been requested prior to that time. Instead, departments should offer an annual review per unit criteria.
