J. Christopher Gaiser, Associate Dean of Faculty/Professor of Biology
After discussions among the Dean of Faculty, the Faculty Executive Council, and the Personnel Committee, we would like to move forward on a key aspect of revision of Promotion at Linfield—the establishment of Departmental Guidelines. This revision has two distinct parts, and these parts will proceed simultaneously.
The first part is the establishment of the guidelines themselves. We will use the Faculty Teaching and Learning Lunches (FTLLs) to begin this discussion. Our first goal will be to develop a template for these guidelines that can be used by all disciplines. Our eventual goal, of course, is for each department, or perhaps each discipline for those departments (e.g., Business, English, SOAN) that house multiple disciplines within a single department, to create guidelines for promotion to Associate Professor and promotion to Professor. FTLL discussions will lay the foundation for a Faculty workday proposed for the afternoon of Friday, April 11, 2014.
You will need to come and get a lunch ticket from Meridith Symons, and then you may choose what you'd like to eat in Dillin. You may use the meal ticket before or after the presentation but you might want to arrive a little early to get through Dillin lines prior to the meeting.
If you make a reservation and find you are unable to attend, please contact email@example.com.
