Promotion and Tenure Policies and Incentives in Higher Education: A Workshop

Project Scope:

An ad hoc committee will plan and convene a convocation to highlight policies and strategies that affect the systems of reward and professional advancement for science, engineering, and medicine faculty in U.S. colleges and universities. The workshop will focus on priorities for faculty teaching, research, service, and public engagement that might be more effectively encouraged through reward and advancement policies. These might include practices and policies that reward participation in public engagement and science communication, encourage the use of evidence-based teaching and mentoring practices, create incentives for more inventive interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary coursework, foster creative efforts to broaden participation among underrepresented groups, and reflect the principles of convergence in courses and programs.

The convocation will be held in early winter 2018-19, and a Proceedings of a Workshop in Brief will be produced.
