Promotion Pathways

The university provides promotional pathways for tenured, tenure-earning, and non-tenured earning employees. Normally, candidates for promotion and/or tenure are eligible beginning in their 6th year of continuous service, perhaps earlier if credit was granted at initial appointment. Candidates must demonstrate meritorious performance in teaching, research, and service as assigned.
