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:

Annual Performance Evaluation

Preliminary or Third Year Review

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 makes a selection of exemplary Promotion and Tenure dossiers available for faculty review throughout the year. These dossiers (Tab 2 faculty narratives) offer good examples of the variety of ways in which faculty summarize and present their work and scholarly impact as part of their promotion and/or tenure case. These dossiers are available for faculty review via CyBox. If you are interested in reviewing these dossiers, please contact Mel Lee at mklee@iastate.edu or Megan Peterson at meganmp@iastate.edu, or call 515-294-9591.
