This panel discussion is intended for any faculty on the tenure track or tenured who are considering applying for promotion and/or tenure in the upcoming cycle or anytime in the future. Tenured faculty who may seek promotion to professor are especially welcome. The panelists will provide both broad perspectives on how to navigate this often complex process that will impact your career for years to come and specific advice on how to prepare for an upcoming application. Comments from the varied perspectives of a dean, an associate professor and a senior full professor will be provided. Discussion points will include: the value and importance of the peer review and the promotion and tenure process in higher education; specifics of the Seton Hall process and how it can impact your work years in advance of an application; tips and comments on how to collect and organize the large amount of evidence you will present in an eventual application; and specific tips on how to present the best application to the various committees and reviewers.  

Light refreshments will be served.
