Exemplary Promotion and Tenure Dossiers

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 read the guidelines and contact Mel Lee at or call 515-294-9591.
