Tenure and Promotion Documents
Before beginning the process of preparing the Tenure and Promotion or Promotion Dossier, candidates should review the guidelines for promotion and tenure and the Content and Format of Documentation for Candidates for Promotion and Tenure, which details the materials that must be included in the dossier.
For details governing the promotion and tenure process and the submitted materials, please refer to the Handbook of Operating Procedures ADM 6-300.
