Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure
Before developing or evaluating materials for reappointment, promotion, or tenure, please review your department RPT guidelines as well as the following:
- UNO General Guidelines for Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure
- Arts and Sciences College Guidelines for Promotion, Tenure and Reappointment
- Instructions from the College RPT committee
- General Timeline for RPT
- Due Dates for 20-21
RPT Packet, Binder, and CV
All candidates for Reappointment and Candidates for Tenure and/or Promotion must submit the RPT Packet, Binder and CV.
The RPT Packet is the information that will go forward to Academic Affairs. Please print the packet on one side of paper only. Please place the packet in the pocket inside the front cover of the binder if you are submitting a physical binder. Packets to accompany electronic binders must be submitted separately to the Dean's office.
College of Arts & Sciences RPT Form: casrpt20_21.pdf
This fillable PDF includes the cover sheet or personnel recommendation form, the UNO RPT form, and the workload history form. Please save the form to your computer before completing it.
Also to be included in the packet (immediately following Part IV.B. of the RPT form) are the teaching evaluation summary sheets. The summary sheet for the current teaching evaluations is named coursevalnew.docx. This table can also be generated by Digital Measures. The summary sheet for the older teaching evaluation form used prior to 2015 is named courseevalold.docx
Research Matrix: research-matrix.docx
This Word doc should be included in the packet immediately following Part IV.C. of the UNO RPT Form.
The RPT Binder provides evidence or documentation of the information in the packet and should be carefully organized for review by department and college committees as well as administrators. Place a Table of Contents at the beginning of each section (Teaching, Research, Service) to show how the material is organized. Only in rare instances will the same documentation be included in more than one section. For example, a candidate must choose whether a pedagogical publication will support the research profile or the teaching profile. It cannot support both. Within sections, keep documentation organized by year. For examples of documentation to be included, please review these instructions from the RPT Committee.
For 20-21, faculty who are submitting applications in support of reappointment for Year 3, 4, or 5, or for promotion and tenure, or promotion to lecturer or professor and who wish to submit their binders electronically should email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a Box folder for this purpose.
Faculty who are submitting applications in support of reappointment for Year 1 and Year 2 will receive an email invitation to a Box folder for this purpose.
- Submit one PDF for each section of your binder: teaching, research, and service.
- All evidence within those sections should be arranged by year beginning with the current year.
- Each section of your binder should include a table of contents to assist reviewers in locating evidence.
A current CV must be submitted either hard copy or digital, as a separate PDF, through Box.
