Promotions

How are FT&R Faculty promoted?

The College of EMS acknowledges that FT&R faculty play a different role within the college than tenure-track faculty. While FT&R faculty duties and responsibilities can be categorized into the areas of teaching, research, service and administration, FT&R faculty job descriptions rarely require that these individuals be responsible for demonstrating evidence of accomplishment in EACH of these areas as are tenured faculty. As a result, FT&R faculty have different career paths and should be evaluated differently than tenure-track faculty. It is important that FT&R faculty evaluation be based upon each FT&R faculty's unique career context.

A new, updated document containing promotion guidelines for fixed-term and research faculty has been approved by Executive Council and is included at: http://www.ems.psu.edu/sites/default/files/documents/faculty_staff/final-ftrfacpromotionguidelinesnovember2012.pdf for general reference.
