University at Albany’s Program for Career, Leadership and University Excellence (CLUE)

CLUE Planning Group on Promotion and Tenure: Chaired by Mary Gallant, Health Policy

This group is made up of academic faculty from the tenured and tenure-track ranks, including those with experience on the Council on Promotions and Continuing Appointments, who express an interest in discussing what the tenure and promotion process should look like into the future at UAlbany. Issues for discussion and development of solutions may include, but are not limited to:

  • Clarifying the standards and process for Promotion and Tenure in the academic ranks, including ways to set expectations for research, teaching and service contributions of tenure track faculty
  • Suggesting formats for support systems and mentoring opportunities for faculty moving toward promotion and tenure
  • Suggesting strategies, support systems and policies to help guide senior faculty and chairs in effective development of tenure and promotion cases
