Teaching and Professional Faculty Virtual Panel (11/19): Pathways to Promotion

Nov 2, 2021

We invite you to join us for a panel discussion hosted by the Vice Provost of Faculty Affairs, Faculty Senate, and the Resident Scholar for Teaching and Professional Faculty, Laura Sponsler. This panel will serve as a space for Teaching and Professional Track Faculty across campus to share resources and experiences about the promotion process set forth in DU’s Policies and Procedures Relating to Faculty Appointment, Promotion, & Tenure (aka, “the APT document”), approved by the Board of Trustees in 2015.

Panelists will address the following questions:

  • If you could describe the narrative arc of your career as a Teaching and Professional Faculty member, what would you say?
  • Share one highlight and one challenge in going through the promotion process.
  • How did mentors, colleagues, and peers support your promotion process?
  • Can you share some examples of evidence you provided (Example frameworks found here) as part of your dossier?
  • What advice do you have for faculty going through the promotion process?
