Faculty Teaching and Learning Lunches

Hosted by the Office of Academic Affairs

Meridith Symons will have lunch tickets available for you to pick up in advance, and you may choose what you'd like to eat in Dillin Hall. 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.

Promotion and Tenure eFiles

Friday, October 27 from 12:15-1:15 p.m. in Dillin NW
Presented by Stephen Bricher and Amy Scholer

Steve Bricher and Amy Scholer will discuss the contents and logistics of the P&T eFiles, which is the electronic format for the dossier (P&T eFile) submitted by a candidate for tenure and/or promotion (associate or full) within the Blackboard environment. See the P&T eFile Prep Instructions (emailed May 15th and on the Faculty Resource page). Following our successful pilot run of P&T eFiles in Fall 2016, all candidates for tenure and/or promotion in Fall 2017 will use the electronic format for their P&T File. If all goes well, we hope to then use electronic files for the entire faculty development and evaluation process described in Section IV.6.1 of the Faculty Handbook.
