Continuing Status and Promotion

The University of Arizona Handbook for Appointed Personnel (UHAP) sets forth the official policies regarding continuing status at The University of Arizona.
UHAP 4 A.3, "Promotion and Continuing Status", served as a reference for the Dean's Advisory Committee (DAC) in the development of the College of Humanities' Guidelines for Appointment, Promotion & Continuing Status for Continuing-Eligible Academic Professionals.
Each department or program with continuing-eligible personnel also has unit-level criteria and procedures that are appropriate to the disciplines of its academic professionals. COH academic professionals may obtain unit-level information concerning the continuing status process from their head or director.

At the end of each spring semester, the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs publishes guidelines and checklists to use in preparing continuing status promotion dossiers.  It is the responsibility of departments and candidates to ensure that the dossier is prepared according to the guidelines.

The Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs also holds workshops each spring designed to provide information about the promotion and continuing status process. The workshops explain the university's review procedures and offers guidance on presenting a continuing status promotion dossier. All candidates for promotion, promotion committees, heads, and directors are encouraged to attend the workshops.
