Mid-Tenure Review Info-Session and Panel
Are you curious about the mid-tenure process? This event will answer some of your questions. The panel discussion begins with a presentation covering RIT’s policies on the tenure and promotion process. Following the presentation a panel consisting of your colleagues share their experience with the process, followed by breakout sessions with a representative from each of the colleges. Faculty are reminded to always check with the department chair/dean's office on their specific college mid-tenure review processes. Learn more.

Faculty Promotion Series
Are you an associate professor, lecturer, or senior lecturer planning to pursue promotion? Originating in 2013 with the Advance Women of Color (WoC) research team, the series is referred to as Promotion and Tenure Series (P&T Smarts), and was designed for AALANA faculty to support their career advancement. FCD now coordinates these workshops for all faculty, including non-tenure track, tenure track, and tenured. The series includes: Strategies for Presenting a Strong Case Workshop: A Discussion with the Provost, University & College Promotion Policies, and Preparing Your External Letters and Research Statements. Learn more.
Initiated with the AdvanceRIT group in 2016, FCD now facilitates the formation of peer mentoring groups for faculty who will be preparing their materials for promotion review, typically being formed in the spring semester and meeting throughout the summer. These mentoring groups are referred to as Promotion Package Preparation Groups, or simply P³ Groups.
