LEAD California, North Carolina Campus Engagement, and Collaboratory are partnering to on a series of conversations (webinars and in-person events) that focus on transforming faculty engaged scholarship promotion and tenure policies and practices in higher education. We began with this first “grounding” webinar in the series, held on February 13, 2023.
Many institutions know promotion and tenure policies need to be revised and evaluative metrics need to be created to better recognize, reward, and retain publicly engaged faculty. But oftentimes they are hit with “analysis paralysis” – the details of where or how to start can be overwhelming. Focused on the big-picture of navigating institutional change, this panel will share insights from three scholars who have helped their institutions revise both formal and informal promotion and tenure processes, and will offer insights for collective movement.
