Library of Resources for Tenure, Promotion, and Reappointment Guidelines Updates
Welcome to the Dean of Faculty’s resource library for faculty and administrators involved in updating faculty tenure, promotion, and reappointment (TPR) guidelines for all academic units in Academic Years 2021—23.
The purpose of these materials is to provide background information, discussion tools, practical suggestions about potential content, and links to other on- and off-campus resources that may prove useful to members of the AU community who are doing this important work—especially members of the TPR guidelines committees in the academic units and those who will review the new guidelines.
We expect the library of resources to evolve as the updating process ramps up and we incorporate ongoing lessons and insights. Please send additional tips, models, discussion-starters, examples, lessons, evidence, and other materials to AssociateDOF@american.edu.
