Provost inviting faculty to forum on promotion and tenure

February 18, 2013  

Faculty are being invited to provide feedback on four topics addressed in the Promotion and Tenure Task Force Report during a forum from noon to 2 p.m. Feb. 25 in Purdue Memorial Union, North Ballroom.

A copy of the task force recommendations can be found at Task Force Report.pdf.

Tim Sands, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost, will open the session, and box lunches will be provided as faculty select one of four breakout sessions: collegiality, interdisciplinarity and joint appointments, how to measure scholarly impact, and post-tenure review.

"This is an opportunity for our faculty to be included in the promotion and tenure policy review process," says Beverly Davenport Sypher, vice provost for faculty affairs. "We look forward to their insights and suggestions."

Faculty are asked to RSVP no later than Wednesday (Feb. 20) at

A second forum is scheduled for 9:30-11:30 a.m. March 6. Topics addressed at that forum will include engagement and service, excellence and distribution of effort, evaluating teaching and learning, and the tenure clock. More information regarding the second forum is forthcoming.
