2106. Tenure and Promotion Review. Area: Professional Development. Plaza

The tenure portfolio is a collection of materials that document faculty performance in
teaching, research/creative work, and service. It brings together in one place, information
about the scope and quality of a faculty member’s activities and accomplishments. This
seminar will focus on how to develop a basic portfolio format, how to select and present
empirical evidence of teaching, research and service, and how to write narratives, if
required. In addition, the significance of the CV as a critical introductory document to the
tenure portfolio will be explained. “Preparing a Portfolio for Tenure Evaluation” is suited
for tenure-track faculty advancing to pre-tenure and/or tenure and promotion review, for
tenured faculty preparing for post-tenure review, and for doctoral students planning
careers as college professors.
