Are you stressed about your tenure & promotion file? Are you wondering how to identify external reviewers? Are you concerned about framing your self-appraisal and portfolio for an department, committee and institution that is predominantly white?
Going up for tenure and promotion for BIPOC 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 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 BIPOC facuty (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.
