Faculty and Clinical Affairs

Faculty Promotion

The Office of Faculty and Clinical Affairs is committed to help our faculty throughout the promotion process.

Promotion Workshop

Our office offers annual workshops that are open to faculty, departmental chairs and departmental personnel who are involved in preparing promotion documents. Held in September, workshop dates are announced in late summer.

Promotion Timeline

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.
