Electronic Submission Process 

Academic Year 2023-2024

The promotion, tenure, and pre-tenure review document submission process has transitioned to an electronic process. The entire dossier will be submitted and reviewed electronically.

Unless a school requires an earlier submission date, the deadline for ALL promotion (all ranks/tracks) and/or tenure submissions into Workflow will be late August 31, 2023

For candidates under review for promotion to Professor (or whose school requires external reviewers for tenure), be prepared to submit your materials during the summer to allow adequate time for the external review process. More information may be found in the dossier preparation instructions.

Unless a school requires an earlier submission date, the deadline for Pre-Tenure faculty submissions into Workflow is in mid-January 2024. 

NOTE: ALL INFORMATION AND SUPPORTING MATERIAL will be submitted via Watermark Faculty Success (formerly Digital Measures) WORKFLOW.
