Promotion and Tenure
The promotion and tenure process relies on presenting the work and trajectory of candidates in a clear, consistent, objective and fair way. Dossiers should present a neutral account of the merits of each case. Understanding the standards for a good dossier is vital to ensuring that we adhere to our mission and the ambitions of our faculty.
Procedures change over time, therefore we arrange meetings each year to provide opportunities for group discussion on issues that arise when preparing dossiers. Information for administrators assisting with the Interfolio dossier preparation can be found here as well.
