Tenure & Promotion

Tenure Research Records and Outcomes

Below are links to charts of research records for the past seven years in successful tenure and promotion to full professor cases in the College of Arts & Sciences. Click on the School link below to access these charts.

School of Humanities (SHUM)

School of Social Sciences (SSS)

School of Natural Sciences & Mathematics (SNSM)

The information available in these charts should be useful to generate discussion among faculty about research expectations; to assist in creating and calibrating departmental criteria for tenure; to provide information to tenure-track faculty about expectations in CAS Schools; and to discern patterns across successful research records that may serve as exemplars and guidance.

Tenure Outcomes by Race/Ethnicity and Gender
This document provides demographic information about tenure candidates and tenure decision outcomes in the College of Arts & Sciences from 2004-2018. Yearly tenure outcomes by gender and race/ethnicity are available in pages 2-6; on pages 7-10 are thirteen year outcomes for women and men, also extrapolated by race/ethnicity.

Tenure Denials and Levels of Recommendation
