Today we meet with Trudy Turner, Secretary of the University to discuss the policy on promotion to full professor. The procedure is outlined in P&P 5.20. We spent time with Provost Britz discussing faculty workload, annual reviews, the need to work cooperatively across schools and colleges to offer courses needed for the curriculum, i.e. history of medicine offered by history to nursing students, etc. We also discussed the abysmal budget outlook and how the University will be weakened by the cuts. Lastly, we talked about post tenure review and how this might be used for fostering development and promotion of faculty after tenure.
