Assembling Your Promotion Record

As a candidate  for promotion, you are responsible for assembling the promotion record, which shall include:

Curriculum Vitae. The curriculum vitae should contain all of the following items (additional pages may be added to the curriculum vitae to supply any missing data):

  1. Education — institutions, degrees granted, dates
  2. Ph.D. dissertation title
  3. Employment — institutions (including UW), positions, dates
  4. UW committees and other duties
  5. Research projects, grants, contracts — funding agencies, dates, amounts of funding, individual’s role (PI, co-PI, other)
  6. Professional offices and awards, with dates
  7. Talks, papers, or presentations — dates, type of presentation (invited, contributed, and/or refereed)

Bibliography. Your complete bibliography should be submitted, with entries listed in full bibliographic format (including range of page numbers or number of pages).

Most Significant Contributions and Personal Statement. You should provide a promotion statement listing and describing your scholarly or creative contributions in the record that are likely to be of the most lasting significance. The majority of selected contributions should have been completed after appointment as Assistant Professor when requesting promotion to Associate Professor, or after appointment to Associate Professor when requesting promotion to Professor. You should explain briefly why these contributions are most significant, describing the relationship between these pieces and your overall research agenda.

You are also expected to briefly describe your significant teaching and service contributions.

Copies of Publications or Evidence of Achievement. One copy each of your publications or comparable evidence of professional growth and achievement should be submitted to the dean’s/chancellor’s office. All publications and similar creative work shall be returned after review.

Additional Supporting Data. Supporting data may be submitted if they are substantive materials which will be helpful in evaluating a candidate’s record. Especially helpful are materials providing clear evidence of national or international reputation. Examples of additional data are election to office or committee status in national or international scholarly or professional organizations; appointments as consultants or editors; invitations to review or evaluate the work of others; selection for grants, fellowships, or awards; achievements of former students; and significant service to the state or to the nation.
