We are awaiting decisions from the University of Florida’s Academic Personnel Board regarding the 12 UF College of Medicine – Jacksonville faculty members seeking promotion this year. Four seek promotion to professor and eight seek promotion to associate professor.
Keep in mind that the dean’s office has a robust mentoring program for faculty who are interested in promotion. The program results in stronger application packets. The same process can also be used by any faculty member who desires mentoring for academic development. Unfortunately, only a few take advantage of the program.
The best time to access the mentoring program is two to three years prior to anticipated application for promotion. Contact Lynn Weathers in the dean’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
