Faculty tenure, promotion are topics of seminars

Confused about the required format for your curriculum vitae (CV)? Uncertain about the guidelines for applying for a promotion or tenure? If your answers are yes, then you'll be interested in attending two seminars sponsored by the Faculty Senate, the Committee for the Advancement of Women and Minorities, and the Medical Hispanic Center of Excellence, in conjunction with the Office of the Vice President for Academic Administration.

The first seminar is for tenure-track faculty members and will take place from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 17. The second seminar is for non-tenure-track faculty and will take place from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, May 1. Both seminars will be held in the School of Nursing auditorium.

Dr. Arun Roy, chair of the faculty promotions, tenure and appointments committee, and Dr. Stephen Shanfield, past chair of the committee, will discuss the process for tenure and promotions and will answer questions from the audience. Participants also will join small group discussions led by faculty members experienced with the promotion and tenure system. Areas of strength in research, service and teaching, which are important for career advancement, will be discussed.

Pre-registration is encouraged to ensure an ample supply of materials and refreshments for all participants. Pre-register by calling ext. 7-2004.
