Professional Development

In addition to showing significant success in teaching, full time non-tenure track faculty candidates for promotion must show they have accomplished a great deal professionally. Given that the areas for professional development within JMC are broad, professional development is evidenced via the effective alignment of activities to the workload statement/appointment letter. Examples might include (but are not limited to) professional awards, active roles in professional organizations, or publication / appearance / presentations in an industry specific outlet, or creative works relevant to the field. Table 6 in the Appendix to this Section of the Handbook outlines evaluation criteria.

Expectations in professional development for promotion to Senior Lecturer/Professor are higher than promotion to Associate Lecturer/Associate Professor. The former requires that the candidates exceed professional development expectations. The latter requires that the candidates meet them.
