Promotion and Tenure

Diversifying Faculty and Staff

Metropolitan State University of Denver

National data indicates that the percentage of full-time faculty has not changed dramatically over the years except for Asian Americans. A snapshot of data from 1993, 2003, and 2015 demonstrates that Native American faculty have grown from 0% in 1993 to 1% in 2003 and 2015; Hispanic faculty have grown from 3% in 1993 to 4% in 2003 and 2015; African American faculty have grown from 5% in 1993 and 2003 to 6% in 2015; and Asian American faculty have grown from 5% in 1993 to 7% in 2003 and 10 % in 2015. We can – and must – do better.

The "tool" is actually a series of action steps designed to achieve an excellent and inclusive faculty: (1) recruitment, (2) preparing the search committee, (3) writing the right job ad, (4) supporting faculty through the tenure process, and (5) providing support for success throughout a person’s career.

Peer Review of Teaching Protocol

University of Arizona
http://www.arizona.edu

The Protocol was created in response to requests from faculty members for help in providing peer review and evaluation of teaching. In addition, UA promotion & tenure dossiers need to include an evaluation of teaching performance.

The Peer Review of Teaching Protocol is designed to guide instructors in the process of formative review of peers’ teaching, as well as evaluation of teaching for summative review. Formative review is used to provide feedback for professional growth and development; it is usually confidential and non-judgmental and its goal is self-motivated change. Evaluation of teaching (e.g., for annual reviews and P & T) is a more formal process; guidelines for using the Protocol for summative evaluation of teaching are included.
