Pathway to Professorship


Excellence in research, teaching, and service are key components in advancing the career of a faculty member. These high standards continue post-tenure. Promotion to full professor is contingent on continuing excellence in research and teaching and balancing this with high-quality contributions to service. The Office of the Senior Vice Provosts for Engagement & Faculty Development and Research are offering the Pathway to Professorship program to support faculty members in career planning toward achieving the rank of full professor.

The Pathway to Professorship program will again be offered in fall 2019.  The program assists faculty members who have been awarded tenure and were promoted to Associate Professor between 2002 and 2018.  We seek participants interested in enhancing their readiness for promotion to full professor.  Participants learn strategies to enhance the success of their case for promotion.

The 2019 Pathway to Professorship program includes three required workshops scheduled in September, October, and November in Holloway Commons and Memorial Union Building.  For details, click the information link, below.
