New faculty, junior faculty and those who are preparing their folders in CSC Online (Sakai) in January were encouraged to attend. We met in the Miller training lab, and each of the two sessions was nearly full.
Portfolios are due to the deans on January 23 2015. If you have questions about the promotion and tenure process, please contact your dean.
