Promotion and Tenure

The Office of Faculty Diversity & Development and Office of Women’s Careers collaborates with the UT Southwestern Medical School's Promotion and Tenure Committee to ensure that faculty members understand the academic advancement timeline and criteria for each distinct academic rank and track as it relates to the promotion and tenure process.

Symposium: Demystifying the P&T Process

Presented in partnership with the Promotion and Tenure Committee, this year's symposium was on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, in the D1.502 Lecture Hall (South Campus). 

The Demystifying the P&T Process Symposium is designed for junior faculty seeking to learn how to navigate the Promotion and Tenure process, and also for department chairs, center directors, division chiefs, and faculty members who may be serving as mentors.
