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
RPT Packet and Binder
All candidates for Reappointment and Candidates for Tenure and/or Promotion must submit both the RPT Packet and the RPT Binder. A binder will be provided to all first year candidates. Chairs should contact the dean's office (4-2338) to have binders made up for anyone seeking promotion to full professor.
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.1st and 2nd Year Candidates for Reappointment should prepare to use a Digital Measures report to generate their RPT packets. Academic Affairs is currently designing a custom Digital Measures RPT report for the College of Arts & Sciences to include the following:
- Arts & Sciences Personnel Recommendation Form
- University Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure Form
- ACE teaching evaluations report
- A&S Workload History Form
- A&S Research Matrix
3rd, 4th and 5th Year as well as Tenure and Promotion Candidates may choose to use the Digital Measures RPT report or the forms below. Those using Digital Measures will still need to provide a teaching evaluation summary form for evaluations predating the ACE on-line evaluations. External evaluations of teaching and/or research are strongly recommended for those going up for promotion to Associate Professor or Professor with a ranking of Distinguished in teaching and/or research.
College of Arts & Sciences RPT Form: casrpt1819.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. 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 is reviewed by the College of Arts & Sciences RPT Committee. You may want to print on both sides of the paper for materials in the binder. 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.
Below is the PowerPoint presentation from the College RPT Orientation 9/8/17.
