UToledo Associate to Professor Program (ATP)

The UToledo Associate to Professor Program (ATP) 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 associate professors who are interested in going up for promotion in the fall of 2022.  Participation will be limited to 15 faculty members, and preference will be given to those applicants who have been at the rank of associate professor for five 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 toward promotion, and developing and submitting an updated dossier.  Other topics will be selected based on the interests of the participants.

The 2021-2022 ATP Program will convene in early October 2021 and conclude in October 2022.  Selected participants will participate in quarterly meetings with all ATP program participants to discuss issues such as the benefits of being a full professor and overcoming barriers.  In addition, each participant will meet monthly with an assigned mentor, based on the faculty member’s and mentor’s schedules.
