Promotion and tenure information workshop

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 Case Western Reserve University is an important aspect of becoming familiar with the culture of the institution.

The Office of Faculty Development will host an information session about tenure and promotion, for tenure-track, tenured and non-tenure-track faculty members.

Attendees will hear what the university is looking for and how you should set about preparing their case for tenure or promotion from:

  • Provost Ben Vinson;
  • Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and Academic and Faculty Affairs Don Feke;
  • Vice Provost for Graduate Education and Academic and Faculty Affairs Chuck Rozek; and
  • Special Assistant to the Provost Lindsay Jacobs.

There also will be opportunities to ask questions.

This session will be held Tuesday, April 18, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in the Freedman Center Collaborations Commons at Kelvin Smith Library.

Those with questions and concerns can be directed to
