Faculty and administrators are encouraged to attend a forum on promotion, tenure, and reappointment (PTR) on Friday, April 18, from 3 to 5 p.m., in Shippee Dining Hall, 1288 Storrs Road.
The event is sponsored by the Faculty Standards Committee of the University Senate.
The forum will include a session outlining PTR procedures led by Provost Peter J. Nicholls, Vice Provost Suman Singha, and Vice Provost Ronald Taylor.
Topics to be addressed during this session include: What are the milestones in the PTR process? How does UConn reappoint, promote, and grant tenure to faculty members? and What is the nature of the PTR review by the department, school or college or center, and the provost?
Breakout sessions will follow, outlining the PTR process specific to each school or college or center. These will be led by the dean or the dean’s designee.
There will also be an alternate session on mid-point and final PTR reviews, led by Singha and Taylor.
The forum is intended as an information session to reduce anxiety about PTR and promote understanding of the details of the process and the resources available.
It will be particularly valuable for non-tenured assistant or associate faculty, but is open to any faculty, administrator, or PTR committee member who wants to learn about the tenure and promotion process.
Refreshments will be served. Reservations are not necessary.
More information is available on the Senate website.
