Faculty Promotion and Tenure: Process, Policies and Documents

Please follow the College of Engineering Faculty Promotion and Tenure Criteria and Procedures to prepare a packet for faculty reappointment or promotion. Review the College of Engineering Policy on Special Faculty Review, if applicable.

Faculty members being considered for reappointment or promotion will need to fill out the Faculty Reappointment and Promotion Template. You may download a blank one, or produce one from Digital Measures. By producing the Digital Measures version, the system will automatically fill in much of the document for you. Then, review the document, make any needed changes, and fill in any missing data or sections. For more information on using Digital Measures and generating this report, please view the Digital Measures documentation and see the directions below.

Departments can upload the entire Promotion and Reappointment packet as a single PDF on our Faculty Promotion and Tenure: Submit Candidate Documents page. Please follow the directions on the Documents List page for which items to include in the PDF and the appropriate order of those items.

Committees and subcommittees who will review the packets may download the relevant materials on the Promotion and Tenure Review page. Please note that committee members will need to use their Andrew IDs and passwords to access these documents.
