How should I prepare for my promotion?

Make sure you have a copy of the PAT document and the suggested curriculum vitae format. Appendix A of the PAT document provides definitions and examples of proficiency, excellence, scholarship, and scholarly activity in the areas of research, teaching, and service. Follow the suggested CV format and make sure your annual work plan matches your time commitments and the requirements of your track. Discuss your readiness for promotion with your department chair, his or her designee, and/or the Vice Dean for Faculty Affairs.
