Consideration of Technology Transfer in Tenure and Promotion

Consideration of Technology Transfer in Tenure and Promotion Abstract Universities face increasing expectations from both the public and elected officials to contribute to the economic development of their respective states, geographical regions, and the country. Technology transfer activities have proven to be a key way to meet these new imperatives. Despite the university’s expanded mission and the growing role of tech transfer, the academic community has yet to produce a consistent framework for evaluating faculty activities in technology transfer and their societal benefits. In response to this situation, the authors, working as the APLU Task Force on Tenure, Promotion, and Technology Transfer, surveyed US and Canadian universities to ascertain current approaches for defining technology transfer activities and recognizing them in assessing faculty performance. Building on the results of that survey, the authors offered the following five recommendations: 1) university policy statements should acknowledge the merit of technology transfer as part of the university’s work, while including safeguards against conflicts of interest or commitment; 2) technology transfer activities should be explicitly included among the criteria relevant for promotion and tenure at the university, college, and department levels, as appropriate to the respective disciplines; 3) technology transfer activities should be an optional component of the review process, one that will be rewarded when present but not seen as a requirement for everyone; 4) recognizing the unique character of technology transfer, the criteria should be flexible enough to encompass high-quality work in many forms of creative expression; and 5) technology transfer activities should be evaluated for intellectual contribution and expected social benefit consistent with the accepted process of peer review and without reliance on artificial metrics.

Tenure Consideration. Department of Foreign Language Studies Criteria and Procedures for Tenure and Promotion

All materials relevant to the tenure consideration, including letters of recommendation, must be available to all tenured department faculty two weeks before the day of the meeting. This file should include evidence of teaching effectiveness, scholarship, and college and community service. It is the responsibility of the candidate to provide a complete credential file for the department and for the Vice President for Academic Affairs, and to supply sufficient copies of the file for members of the Committee on Academic Rank and Tenure (CART). Although the candidate may consult with the chair and other members of the department in compiling the dossier, he/she is fully responsible for developing, maintaining, and submitting these materials on time.

3) If a candidate in the third year shows inadequate progress or an inability to complete the requirements in the remainder of the contracted time, such findings will be transmitted by the LP&TC in its review to the faculty member and the Dean. 4) A tenure-track faculty member may request to apply for promotion and/or tenure earlier than the date stipulated in their letter of appointment. The faculty member is strongly encouraged to consult with the chair of the LP&TC and the Chair before requesting early consideration. The promotion and/or tenure process will be conducted with the same procedures and applying the same criteria for an early application as for a full-term application. A negative decision on the part of the LP&TC in an early application will not affect the candidate’s previously-set promotion and tenure timeline. The tenure-track faculty member will notify the LP&TC chair of their intent to come up for early

productivity and professional development will continue through the remainder of the candidate’s career. Decisions regarding promotion to Professor are less matters of time in rank than of bodies of work and significant accomplishment. While the particular configuration of any individual’s scholarly contributions will always be unique, it is nevertheless possible to anticipate recognizable profiles of outstanding achievement worthy of consideration for promotion to the rank of Professor, as described below. The application for promotion to Professor must define a profile that is to be used in evaluating the candidate. It is the candidate’s responsibility to identify which profile, or combination of profiles he or she is using, and to present accomplishments, documentation, and justification for peer and administrator review arranged according to the framework outlined in the profile descriptions. In some cases, the candidate’s record may fit clearly into one of the four profiles described below. In other cases, the candidate’s

Service in the Retention, Tenure, and Promotion Process

Service in the Retention, Tenure, and Promotion Process

• The consideration of faculty service of this type is explicitly included in our RPT document within the section labeled Internal University Contributions. • The University policy does not contain details about the kinds of scholarly and professional activity nor about the kinds of service we value. Department documents are much more likely to provide this kind of detail. In providing detail, department documents are inclusive rather than exclusive; that is, they list some of the activities that faculty members may present as evidence of meeting service responsibilities. These lists include advising student clubs and other activities, and advising under-represented students. Faculty members engage in student recruitment activities such as Admissions Day on campus, recruiting visits to local feeder schools, etc. and these activities appear in their RTP dossiers and are given weight and value.

PROMOTION AND TENURE CRITERIA COLLEGE OF NURSING

PROMOTION AND TENURE CRITERIA COLLEGE OF NURSING

The designation of lead author is complex and warrants special considerations. One consideration is faculty member discipline. Academic disciplines and their associated journals have different norms for designating lead authors. The Social sciences generally indicate lead author in the first position, while bench sciences more often use the final position to indicate lead author. Another consideration is involvement of students and junior faculty members in the research of the faculty member being reviewed. That is, faculty members using their own research program experiences to mentor students often allow the student to have first author position, while the faculty as lead author assumes the second position. In collaborative research all authors are expected to play individuated roles. These roles are acknowledged by authorship often established alphabetically. Last, consideration of role of faculty members in student dissertations is also related to discipline. Depending on the academic discipline, publications from student dissertations may or may not include the dissertation advisor as an author. In the Nursing discipline this practice is contingent in part, on the relative independence of the student for the article's conceptualization, data source, and analyses.

Evaluation and Promotion of Tenure-Track Faculty at Williams

Evaluation and Promotion of Tenure-Track Faculty at Williams

Although student opinions are given serious consideration in the tenure decision, the evaluation of non-tenured faculty is largely based on the judgment of their tenured colleagues who are in the best position by far to assess professional growth and promise. While no common form of direct faculty assessment has been mandated, each department and program is required in its annual staffing report to give an interpretation of all available data on the teaching effectiveness of its non-tenured members. Such data would include not just SCS scores but also syllabi and other course related materials. Many departments and programs also schedule class visits, and, in some, tenured and non-tenured faculty regularly exchange visits to each other's classes. Other departments and programs have opportunities for team-teaching or faculty seminars and colloquia in addition to opportunities for interaction at regularly scheduled meetings. The departments also collect evaluative commentary on an annual basis from the chairs of any

Library Criteria for the Promotion and Tenure of Faculty Librarians

Library Criteria for the Promotion and Tenure of Faculty Librarians

Librarians’ involvement in the evaluation of materials also may result in the writing of book and other media reviews. However, other demonstrations of scholarship and professional achievement are also valued. While scholarship published in national, peer-reviewed sources may be heavily weighted, alternatives at the regional level and even within the campus may also receive favorable consideration. Librarians are encouraged to explore issues and problems concerning the library’s services to our users, develop informed programs, and communicate the results to other educators or professionals to improve these services. Additional education that supports the changing needs of the campus is another form of scholarship that suits the library’s mission. In all cases, scholarly activity should be documented in some tangible form that allows for disseminating this

http://provost.missouri.edu/faculty/tenure.html and the UM System Collected Rules and Regulations http://www.umsystem.edu/ums/departments/gc/rules/personnel/320/035.shtml. In general, faculty members are offered one of five types of initial appointments: non‐regular term (non‐tenure track) appointments that include clinical track, research track, and teaching track or regular term appointments (tenure track) which include (clinician scholar) and (research scholar) paths to tenure. Unlike faculty members in regular term appointments, faculty in clinical track, research track and teaching track appointments are not eligible for consideration for continuous appointment (tenure). Faculty in both the Clinical Track and Tenure Track may request consideration for promotion in any year. Academic rank (and tenure where applicable) are awarded to recognize and promote excellence in teaching, research, and service including patient care. All faculty, regardless of the track on which they are appointed, are expected to contribute to the mission of the University through forms of scholarship, teaching service.
