Announcements and Calendar Events

In the Faculty Resource Section you will find a memo from Dr. Gary Miller listing the deadline dates for those applying for promotion/tenure in the academic year of 2007/08 (promotions and tenure effective 9/08). Please be reminded that Step I comes at the very beginning of the school year, so please don't let it catch you by surprise.

Below is a message from the Chair of the UPC regarding the additional revision approved two years ago if you're applying for promotion WITHIN rank (i.e., AT 1B to AT 2B). All appropriate forms are included in the Faculty Resources section.

"The Council of Instructional Deans and University Personnel Committee have introduced a more "streamlined" application process for application WITHIN ranks of Assistant/Associate Professor. When a professor is applying for Assistant 2, Associate 2 or Associate 3 levels, he/she should use a different form (attached) with the following modified requirements:

  1. Only ONE set of reviews are required for teaching and scholarship. The peer reviewer uses a standardized/more detailed evaluation form provided with the new application.
  2. NO supporting document notebook is required, although a faculty member may present evidence of accomplishment if he/she chooses."

Important Reminder

If you are applying for tenure, you must submit the doctrinal statement portion of the tenure application, along with the doctrinal review form: Tenure, as a cover.


Colleagues,

Faculty Research and Development Grants Application

The Faculty Research & Development Committee is now accepting applications for the 2011-12 academic year.

This is a great opportunity to receive internal funding for research projects or professional development costs.

Three grant categories exist which correspond to a wide range of opportunities and needs. Your request should relate directly to research and professional development, and may encompass release time from teaching or other income-producing responsibilities, equipment, and other research costs.

The deadline for filing the application is March 31, 2011. The committee will announce the recipients by the end of April. The upcoming grant period begins with the 2011-12 budget year. Therefore you may apply for funding to use beginning July 1, 2011 and ending in June 2012 (use of grants must be finalized by May 31, 2012). Keep in mind that you cannot receive a grant for either Interterm or Summer School if you are already contracted to teach during that semester.

If you need assistance or have questions, please call Holly Reyes at ext. 4048.
