Associate to Full Professor Series: How Will I Know When I'm Ready for Promotion?

| 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

After years of working toward [full] professor rank, it’s often heartening to look over your accomplishments in research or creative activities, teaching, and service to see how much you’ve done. Deciding whether you are finally ready to apply for promotion to professor can be a difficult choice, though. This session will help you to make an informed decision about whether you’re ready, or how much longer you need to properly prepare. It will also help you to better envision the road ahead as a professor. This session is designed with tenured associate professors on the Denver Campus in mind. However, all are welcome to participate in this workshop. The session will include plenty of time for discussion.

Session goals:

  • Assess whether you are currently ready to apply for promotion to professor, or
  • Estimate the number of years of additional preparation you require.
  • Consider conversations with chairs, deans, or colleagues that you may wish to have before deciding on your timeline.
  • Learn about life as a [full] professor.
Facilitators: Karen Sobel. Panel: Tom Altman, Scott Bauer, Diana Tomback.
