Participation in the ATP program is open to all tenured faculty who are interested in going up for promotion in the fall of 2020. 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 toward promotion, and developing an updated dossier. Other topics will be selected based on the interests of the participants.

The ATP Program will convene in September 2019, followed by twelve monthly sessions, and conclude in September 2020. 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.
