Promotion Training Materials & Checklists

Promotion marks an achievement of successful contributions in all assigned areas and is an important part of becoming a more reflective and successful faculty member. Below are the promotion formats and processes, as well as information on timing and review.

New Integrated Format: The New Integrated Format combines the Community Colelge and Technical College formats. Faculty hired in 2004 or after should use the New Integrated Format. Faculty hired prior to 2004 may use the New Integrated Format or their appropriate grandfathered format as they so choose. 

  1. The college president/ceo invites "a faculty member to prepare a vita and the appropriate supporting materials" for a promotion file
  2. "The college president/ceo has the responsibility for ensuring that each promtion file is complete and contains the advice of [letter from] the division chair and six or more faculty letters, including at least all Associate and Professor division members located on the same campus [college]." As a candidate for promtion, you should provide a current vita to all faculty who would be writing letters.

See the review processes below for each format.

The Appeal process for all faculty includes a period of 30 days and an appeal hearing format will be utilized. 

Minimum Time-in-Rank

The time in rank is structured as a 3-3-6 year process; 3 years Assistant, 3 years Associate, and 6 Professor. The faculty member is thus eligible for promotiond during the third, sixth, and twelfth year with the current years counting as one of the 3-3-6. 

Local College Support

You should have a mentor, either self-selected or assigned by the College Advisory Committee on Promotion, on your campus to assist you in compiling your promotion file.
