Professorial Promotion Process FAQs

Faculty members listening to a seminar.

The goal of the Professorial Promotions Committee (PPC) is not to create barriers to promotion; in fact, we view the PPC as an important tool for career development. In that light, the PPC is willing to provide advice to any faculty member on his or her own career, CV or portfolio. Usually, this happens AFTER the department has provided advice.

Contact the PPC chair directly: Ralph Hruban at [email protected] or Karen Parkent at [email protected]. Either of us would be willing to review a CV for accuracy and impact.
