Promotions and Tenure
Promotions and tenure review occurs once a year. Packets are due in the Dean's Office on September 8, 2017 with an effective date July 1, 2018. NO LATE packets will be accepted. Official notification from the Chancellor's Office is typically made shortly before the effective date of the successful advancement.
Candidates and those individuals assisting in the preparation of promotion and tenure materials should familiarize themselves with the Guidelines and Criteria for Promotions and Tenure. Faculty candidates (and those planning for future promotions) are encouraged to attend one of several workshops on academic advancement held each spring on the main campus as well as at Children’s, Baton Rouge OLOL and University Medical Center. Required School of Medicine documentation for promotions packets include: LSUHSC – NO - LSU Promotion/Tenure Review Request Form (revised and “modernized”), Teaching Portfolio (Structured Summary only), Additional Information (for clinical faculty only), Curriculum Vitae (using standardized format), Signatory Page, and letters of recommendation. Detailed instructions are available on the Promotions and Tenure Memo for FY 16-17. Please note that departmental requirements may exceed those of the School of Medicine, but that only the materials listed above will be reviewed by the School of Medicine Appointments and Promotions Committee and by higher levels of academic review.
All faculty candidates participate in the preparation of promotions and tenure materials before formal review begins. The faculty candidate attests that the promotions packet is accurate and complete before formal review begins, acknowledging the attestation on the Signatory Page. Letters of recommendation are then added to the packet; letters of recommendation should be solicited using the standardized template available below.
