The University has updated the forms used for annual review, promotion, and tenure. After soliciting feedback from department chairs and deans, the new forms are aimed at streamlining candidate dossiers and promoting more standardization of the materials submitted, while enabling candidates to create an organized and clear summary of their performance accomplishments over the review period. The electronic portfolio with the embedded forms can be found here:
Please note, the portfolio must be opened in Adobe Acrobat. If you receive this message, please either click on "Open in Different Viewer," or right-click/control + click on the above link and select an option that allows you to download the portfolio.
Please note that this portfolio is now being used for annual reviews as well as for promotion and tenure purposes. Faculty who are being reviewed must use the online system beginning this year. If you have not already done so, you will need to obtain Adobe Acrobat Professional X from the Help Desk in the basement of the Library and then use the portfolio template linked above to build your dossier. The document linked here describes the 14 folders in the portfolio and their contents.
After completing your dossier, you will submit it to your department’s Annual Review, Promotion and Tenure Sakai site. Instructions on the process are linked here:
For chairs and deans, here are additional instructions on how to manage the department and college Promotion and Tenure Sakai sites:
