Handbook CRITERIA: PROMOTION TO FULL PROFESSOR FACULTY HANDBOOK: To be promoted to Professor, an Associate Professor must display consistent excellence in teaching and should have earned the Doctorate or appropriate terminal degree except in extraordinary circumstances where the evidence demonstrates that the absence of the Doctorate does not inhibit the faculty member's professional standing and performance. In addition, the person should have achieved acknowledged professional recognition through scholarship or creative activity; demonstrate professional development; and have made vital contributions to the unit, university and community. The extent of participation in these areas will be affected by a variety of factors, including the stage of the faculty member's career and the program objectives of the university. Ordinarily, at least seven (7) full time equivalent years at the rank of Associate Professor must be completed before an Associate Professor may be considered for promotion to Professor. SPNHA GUIDELINES: Promotion to Professor requires a continuing record of excellence in teaching together with significant contributions to one's discipline, profession, and community. Such contributions include, but are not limited to: peer reviewed journal articles, applied research reports for public and nonprofit agencies, a published book, completed subsequent to promotion to associate professor. All scholarship must be subject to peer review. The successful candidate for full professor will also have an established record of vital service to the university, community, and profession.
