Faculty members being considered for tenure, permanent status, and/or promotion in the academic year 2019-20 must be made aware of the website URL where they can find the University’s “Guidelines and Information Regarding the Tenure, Permanent Status and/or Promotion Process for 2019-2020”.  This information also should be given to new faculty to familiarize them with our tenure and promotion process.  Faculty should be aware, however, that the “Guidelines” are updated annually.

Faculty Relations will send a list of candidates to those units/departments that have tenure and permanent status accruing faculty.  The list has the date a faculty member began accruing time towards tenure/permanent status.  Please notify Deanna Nelson at 352-273-1773 or email her at Deanna.Nelson@ufl.eduof any necessary corrections.

The candidate must certify that his or her tenure and/or promotion packet is complete before departmental review and voting occurs.  Nominees must organize their packet according to a Template, available in the Online Promotion and Tenure (OPT) system, including the order of documents, and numbers and titles of sections.
