Guidelines for Division Assistant Dean/Supervisors working with eligible faculty for P&T
- As a starting point, faculty and Division Assistant Dean/Supervisor should review the P&T Guidelines for the College of Nursing. Included in these guidelines are Examples of Activities related to each of the areas of emphasis organized into levels of expanding scope of accomplishments.
- The Assistant Dean/Supervisor has the responsibility to assist every new faculty appointee in determining the amount of emphasis (percent of effort) to place on each area of academic endeavor in accordance with Section 4.3 of the Bylaws of the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska. This selection should be compatible with activities required to achieve the long-term goals of tenure and eventual appointment to the rank of professor.
- Faculty members should meet at least annually with their Division Assistant Dean/Supervisor to discuss expectations and accomplishments (teaching, scholarly activities, professional service) for each area under review toward promotion and tenure.
- It would be expected that each faculty identifies a promotion and tenure goal to be discussed at the annual evaluation. A summary of progress toward promotion and tenure across the years since last appointment be provided and reviewed with the Division Assistant Dean/supervisor on an annual basis.
- Faculty are encouraged to collect the required documents and carefully review the specific requirements for the preparation of a promotion and tenure application. These are listed on the CON website (https://www.unmc.edu/nursing/faculty/faculty-promotion-and-tenure.html).
- The most important of the required documents are the Personal Narratives and your Curriculum Vitae. This document describes their accomplishments in the three areas of teaching, scholarly activity, and professional service.
- It is recognized that not all faculty will fit unified or predefined stereotypes and that each candidate will come forward with a unique blend of activities supporting, in different areas and extents, the Mission of the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the College of Nursing. It is a primary responsibility of the candidate, through his or her written narrative(s) and the Division Assistant Dean/Supervisors through his or her accompanying letter, to clearly describe the significance of the candidate’s contributions and define how he or she contributes in the chosen areas of emphasis to the Mission of the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the College of Nursing.
