2024 Promotion and Tenure Workshops

The Office for Faculty Advancement is operating a number of workshops to help support faculty promotion preparation and success. Register for sessions here. Seeking promotion and/or tenure is often a mystifying and intimidating process. The Office for Faculty Advancement has developed a series of workshops aimed to demystify and support faculty.
