This panel session is based on the feedback from last year’s conference attendees (Purdue only). The main goals of this session are to gain insights into the promotion process from both, those who have experience with being promoted recently and not so recently, as well as those who are/have been involved in the review process. The session therefore includes: (a) recently promoted fulls, (b) advanced fulls, (c) heads and a dean. The 2-hour panel session will comprise two parts. In the first part, three Purdue associate professors from across colleges will pose a few main questions to the panelists. In the second part, the session will be open to Q&A/comments from all attendees. Please note that the conference is open to faculty members from outside Purdue for the first time this year.
