UCITE session to discuss promotion, tenure at CWRU

UCITE’s next session, to be held Sept. 29, will be centered on promotion and tenure. This session is geared toward faculty members who are tenured, on the tenure track or anticipate a tenure track position some day.

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.

Provost W.A. “Bud” Baeslack III, Deputy Provost Lynn Singer and Lois Langell, special assistant to the provost, will attend this session to answer questions, share what the university is looking for and discuss how to prepare your case for tenure.

The discussion will be held Thursday, Sept. 29, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Herrick Room on the ground floor of the Allen building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid), next to the revolving door entrance on Euclid Avenue.

Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided; RSVP to ucite@case.edu.
