Instructions for Faculty
Before developing or evaluating a dossier for reappointment, promotion, or tenure, please review both the UNO General Guidelines for Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure and the Arts and Sciences College Guidelines for Promotion, Tenure and Reappointment. In addition, review any procedures or guidelines developed by your department. Also available here are instructions from the RPT committee.
If anyone in your department is going up for PROMOTION to Full Professor, you will need to call the dean's office at (4-2338) to have a notebook made up for you.
RPT Forms and Binder
2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Year Candidates for Reappointment and Candidates for Tenure and/or Promotion must submit both the RPT Packet and the RPT Binder.
The RPT Packet is the information that will go forward to Academic Affairs. Please place the packet in the pocket inside the front cover of the binder. The packet will include all forms listed below. External evaluations of research contributions are also recommended for applications for promotion to Associate Professor or Professor with a ranking of Distinguished in research.
College of Arts & Sciences RPT Form: casrpt1718.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. (Should you choose to use the Digital Measures RPT report instead of this form, you will need the separate personnel recommendation form and workload history form.)
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. 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.
