Service

Full time non-tenure track faculty in JMC who have service obligations specified on their workload statements or letters of appointment are expected to provide service to the school. A faculty member’s willingness to make contributions to the overall progress of the School is an important measure of the faculty member’s fitness for promotion.

Contributions as a University citizen include service to the School, the College, and the University as outlined in Table 5. The merits of University service should be evaluated as to (1) whether or not the candidate chaired the committee listed and (2) the importance of the service to the mission of the unit served. Other components of citizenship include active participation in School events, such as faculty- undergraduate- and graduate-student recruitment, seminars and department meetings, etc.

Additional components of service include public outreach and professional or academic service. These may differ in their importance among faculty members, depending on each faculty member’s duties and responsibilities within the School.

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