Fireside chat on tenure and promotion process for in-track faculty

The Office of Faculty Development will host an information session for tenure-track, tenured and non-tenure-track faculty members to learn about tenure and promotion. Faculty members who anticipate a tenure-track position someday also are welcome to attend the session. In this informal session, faculty panelists will share their experiences navigating tenure-track promotion at Case Western Reserve University.

The typical criteria for tenure and promotion are scholarship, teaching and service. All universities subscribe to this, but how these terms are interpreted can vary from institution to institution, school to school, and even department to department. Learning how they are applied and measured at CWRU is an important aspect of becoming familiar with the culture of the institution.

Tenured faculty panelists will attend this session to share what the university is looking for, how you should set about preparing your case for tenure or promotion, and to answer questions.

This session will be held Friday, April 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Allen Memorial Medical Library’s Herrick Room. 

Immediate questions and concerns can be directed to the faculty development team at
