Promotion Policies and Procedures
The promotion policies and procedures at East Stroudsburg University contribute to academic excellence by commending outstanding professional performance.
Promotion at East Stroudsburg University occurs as a function of the judgment of designated peers about the quality of the performance of a candidate for promotion. The academic promotion process must go beyond considerations of either longevity or minimal statutory requirements. Promotion should indicate that a Faculty Member is performing his or her work in a professional manner that is considered outstanding and worthy of commendation. Promotion is recognition of excellence, not a contractual right. An equitable and widely understood promotion policy helps ensure that considerations of academic quality will be the basis for all academic personnel decisions, and bolsters faculty morale.
The promotion policies and procedures outline dates, basis for promotion, responsibilities, recommendation, review, grievance, and other important information.
