- MCL assistant professors serve an initial term of four years and may be reappointed for a six-year term for a total of ten years in rank.
- Reappointment and promotion reviews are typically launched one year in advance of the appointment end date.
- Faculty have the responsibility for designing and pursuing a schedule of scholarship that results in publication in advance of the review.
- Generally, by the time materials have been submitted, the candidate’s dossier should predominantly reflect a record of actual accomplishment (which confirms status in the field) rather than work that has been submitted or accepted but not yet published (which may speak more to promise).
- It is important to document works in process in the curriculum vitae and Candidate’s Statement as this will be valuable in confirming momentum and upward trajectory.
- If significant events – such as publication acceptances – occur after reappointment or promotion materials have been submitted, the candidate should check with his or her chair to see if there is a way for this information to become part of the record under review.
