Faculty Advancement and Review

Excellent faculty are the heart and soul of an excellent university. At Iowa State, we strive to support faculty success in teaching, research, professional practice, and extension through constructive mentoring and regular developmental feedback by department chairs and senior colleagues. Review processes to guide faculty career advancement include:

Promotion to Professor

Post Tenure Review

Promotion and Tenure

Information for Colleges and Department Chairs

Forms and Materials for Promotion and Tenure Process

The Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost has available some Promotion and Tenure documents that offer excellent examples of the variety of ways in which faculty work can be summarized. These are available for review by candidates and Department Chairs in 1550 Beardshear. If you are interested in reviewing these dossiers, please contact Mel Lee at mklee@iastate.edu or 4-9591.
