Pathway to Professorship

Excellence in research, teaching, and service are key components in advancing the career of a faculty member. These high standards continue after promotion to Associate.

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 Engagement & Faculty Development is offering the Pathway to Professorship program to support faculty members in career planning toward achieving the rank of full professor.

Pathway to Professorship will be offered in fall 2020.  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 program assists faculty members who have been promoted to Associate Professor between 2003 and 2018.  

Faculty considering going up for full professor in the next five years should attend this workshop series.

The 2020 Pathway to Professorship program includes three required workshops scheduled in September, October, and November in Holloway Commons.  For details, click the information link, below.


Recruiting for fall 2020 will begin this summer.
