In the School of Design, candidates for promotion or tenure are evaluated based on three broadly defined areas of activity – Teaching, Research/Scholarship/Creative Accomplishment, and Service. Accomplishments in these areas must contribute significantly to the overall quality of the School’s tenured faculty, demonstrate continued growth and productivity, and show potential for continuing high-quality contributions in teaching, research/scholarship/creative accomplishment, and service for promotion to be granted.
