Promotion and tenure recommendations are among the most important decisions made at the University. The choices that the University makes in granting promotion and tenure are vital to its endeavors toward academic excellence. Guidelines for the promotion and/or tenure process are found in department and school faculty evaluation plans and the Faculty Senate Rules and Regulations, Article VI.

The reference materials available will help to familiarize you with the basic policies and procedures associated with the promotion and tenure process at The University of Kansas.
