Faculty forum to focus on PTR process

- March 19, 2007

Faculty and administrators are encouraged to attend a forum on promotion, tenure, and reappointment (PTR) on Friday, April 20, from 3 to 5 p.m., in the Pequot Room in Shippee Residence Hall.

The event is sponsored by the Faculty Standards Committee of the University Senate.

The forum will include a session outlining PTR procedures led by Provost Peter J. Nicholls, Vice Provost Suman Singha, and Vice Provost Ronald Taylor.

Topics to be addressed include: What are the important milestones in the PTR process? How does UConn reappoint, promote, and grant tenure to faculty members? and what is the nature of the PTR review by the department, school/college, and the provost?

Breakout sessions will follow, outlining the PTR process specific to each school or college.

There will also be a breakout session on mid-point and final PTR reviews, led by Singha.

The forum is intended as an information session to reduce anxiety about PTR and promote understanding of the details of the process and the resources available.

It will be particularly valuable for junior faculty, but is open to anyone who wants to learn about the tenure and promotion process.

For more information call 860-486-2236 or see http://senate.uconn.edu/PTRforum.htm
