For Faculty

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 2018-19 Tenure applications is Monday, January 14, 2019 at 5 p.m.  This year's Tenure and Promotion process will be generated through the new Archivum System.  If you have any questions regarding the new system, please contact Adam Caskie at acaskie@usf.edu.  The guidelines in effect can be accessed below.
