Tenure and Promotion
In order for the University to perform its functions effectively, it is essential that faculty members feel free to express new ideas and divergent viewpoints in their teaching and research. In the process of teaching and research, there must be freedom to question and challenge accepted "truths." A university must create an atmosphere that encourages faculty members to develop and share different ideas and divergent views and to make inquiries unbounded by present norms. Tenure contributes significantly to the creation of such an atmosphere.
The deadline for 2017-18 Tenure applications is Monday, January 8, 2018 at 5 p.m. Please see the Tenure and Promotion Memo for further information.
