UT Associate to Professor Program (ATP)

The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce the inaugural UT Associate to Professor Program (ATP). This is an opportunity designed to help prepare associate level faculty members to be promoted to the rank of full professor. Participation in the ATP program is open to all tenured faculty who are interested in going up for promotion in the fall of 2018. Preference will be given to those applicants who have been at the rank of associate professor for seven years or more. Participants in the ATP program will receive guidance in developing goals and a timeline for obtaining promotion, understanding college and department elaborations, examining progress towards promotion, and developing an updated dossier. Other topics will be selected based on the interests of the participants.

The 2017 ATP Program will convene in September 2017, followed by twelve monthly sessions, and conclude in September 2018. Selected participants will meet once per month with their assigned mentor. Participation will be limited to 15 faculty members, and the monthly meetings will be scheduled based on the faculty member’s and mentor’s availability. In addition, there will be four quarterly meetings with all ATP program participants to discuss such issues as the benefits of being a full professors and overcoming barriers. 

Those accepted into the program will be eligible to apply for up to $500 for research related expenses. 

Please refer to the attached program description, application process and form.
