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.

This page provides UCRT guidelines for the submission of rank and tenure applications and the subsequent decisions made on the Main Campus. Because our procedures and understanding of optimal practices evolve over time, 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.

See timelines for due dates for the submission and reviews of dossiers.

If you have any questions, please contact the Vice Provost for Faculty, Reena Aggarwal, or Kristen Rogers.
