The documents below will serve as a guide to faculty applying for promotion. Below are the application for promotion and the promotion policies and procedures.

New interactive electronic versions of the forms used for hiring, sabbaticals, promotion, tenure, evaluations and awards are now available on the Provost's website under the appropriate categories.

Complete the electronic forms online and then save as .pdf files. The documents can be printed to obtain the necessary signatures. Please be sure to use these updated documents in place of any that you may have on hand, which should be recycled, since the electronic version may be updated regularly. If the document is a checklist for evaluation, please print only, as the checklists are not interactive.

As in the past, the majority of the forms are printed on specific colors of paper. The color (ex: Salmon) is written at the top and the end/bottom of the form. If no color is noted, submit on plain white paper. After a form has been completed, please remember to save your excel worksheet for future reference.

Please note that these documents are not to be sent electronically for submission or signature. Please follow the usual procedures/processes for signature or approval using a printed, hard copy on the appropriate paper. As these forms are part of an application, they should be submitted as a complete package and not sent electronically. Please let us know if you have any questions at 610-436-3405.

PDF files require Acrobat Reader by Adobe. If you do not have this, you can download the software for free.)
