Are you stressed about your tenure & promotion file?
Are you wondering how to identify external reviewers?
Are you concerned about framing your self-appraisal, DEI contributions and portfolio for a department, committee and institution that is predominantly white?
Do you want to receive some COVID related advise and best practices in terms of addressing your teaching and scholarship that may have taken a different route?
Going up for tenure and promotion for BIPOC-WOC faculty requires some careful planning and strategies to be successful in the process. Preparing for this high stake process and putting the file together should ideally start at least a year before a BIPOC-WOC candidate is either slated to go up for their tenure and promotion to associate ranking, or applying for full professorship.
In this co-led workshop by two experienced and senior BIPOC -WOC faculty (who are both full professors and have been members of PT committees in their institutions and external reviewers for others) will provide some hands-on tips, best practices and resources to address the preparation for your files. Some of the topics covered will include, but not limited to writing an engaging self-appraisal, to demonstrating strong and impactful teaching and research statements, along with addressing hostile teaching evaluations, and showcasing “service” to your institution and your profession. External reviews are also a part of the PT process in many institutions and the workshop will prepare participants to plan and engage in this process.
Space is limited. Please register early.

“This workshop really prepared me to address some rather hostile comments in my teaching evaluations that had made me very nervous. I was also able to use some of the COVID related advise to frame some of my delayed fieldwork. This workshop was instrumental in helping me receive tenure and promotion this year!”
