General Principles Regarding Faculty Promotion

The mission and goals of University Libraries support the mission and strategic plan of Kent State University. In alignment with these, the UL criteria for promotion are based on the need to recognize a faculty member who has: provided quality service to his/her user community; contributed to the body of scholarly knowledge; and positively impacted UL, the University, and the profession. As the responsibilities of UL faculty positions do not conform to a single pattern, faculty are expected to contribute to the unit and the University in accordance with both specific position responsibilities and the expectations of the University and UL policies for promotion.
