The Office of Faculty and Clinical Affairs is committed to help our faculty throughout the promotion process.
Our office offers annual workshops that are open to faculty, departmental chairs, and departmental personnel who are involved in preparing promotion documents. An announcement of workshop dates will go out on the BSOM listserv generally after the first of the year.
The provost's office sets the submission dates at the university level. Our office works within these deadlines to establish a timeline for faculty to prepare their promotion files.
