UD ADVANCE partners with the provost’s office to offer panels annually. Promotion and tenure (P&T) panels for assistant professors include newly tenured and selected senior faculty as panelists, with a focus on those who have served on P&T committees. Panels for associate professors (post-tenure), with full professors as panelists, will address the uncertainty that associate professors often experience regarding career progression. These panels are appropriate for any faculty member looking ahead to their next promotion — not just those intending to go up in the next year. We especially encourage new assistant professors to attend and learn strategies from their recently promoted peers.
Activities focusing on leadership opportunities for full professors will include speakers who hold positions such as department chair, dean or named professor.
