Tenure & Tenure-Track Faculty Resources

YUMPs (Young Upwardly Mobile Professors)

YUMPS is a program for new faculty​ on the tenure-track. We offer meetings or workshops throughout the year focused on the tenure process. Watch our event calendar for YUMPS events. See the resources below for information on attaining tenure.

The YUMPS program also provides small grants (usually $400-$500) for conference attendance, research assistants, books or software. YUMPs funds must be matched by the recipient's department or school/college. See our faculty grants page for more information.

Faculty Grants

The center sponsors two grant programs. All faculty may apply for Faculty Development Grants. See our faculty grants page for more information.
