This is the time of year when junior faculty request letters of evaluations for tenure files. Faculty are reminded about helpful guidance for these letters found in the Guide to Tenure, Promotion, and Periodic Review (pilots.up.edu > Resources > Faculty Resources > Rank and Tenure Guidelines). The Committee on Rank and Tenure values letters that are specific and detailed, providing clear examples and evaluation. For further information, contact Michael Connolly, chair, Committee on Rank and Tenure, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The scholarly activity portal is always live and ready for faculty input on PilotsUP under the “Academics” tab. The data obtained via the portal is used to populate A Community of Scholars, published annually by the provost’s office. That data will also be used for the Clark Library’s annual celebration of UP authors. Additionally, faculty members will send a report from their portal to their respective deans as a part of the annual self-evaluation, and they can also use the data entered to develop their personal curriculum vitae.
