This session is part of a campus-wide conversation about aligning faculty tenure, promotion, and reappointment (TPR) guidelines with the values of equity and inclusive excellence. Panelists will set the scene with recent findings from AU’s NSF-funded ADVANCE* research team, update colleagues on the current, ongoing TPR revision process, and discuss the role of scholarship metrics in inclusive excellence.
*ADVANCE is an NSF-funded grant with the goal of increasing the representation and advancement of women and underrepresented minorities at all levels in academic science (including social sciences). ADVANCE grants fund both research and activity-based projects at institutions of higher education and STEM related not-for-profits.
Understand key facts and themes about AU faculty from recent ADVANCE research findings
Locate those facts and themes in the larger context of faculty development, including tenure, promotion, and reappointment processes
Understand why and how AU is undertaking a campus-wide revision of faculty guidelines to align faculty development processes with inclusive excellence
Feel better equipped to participate in conversations in their own academic units about revising TPR guidelines
