Criteria for promotion to Associate Professor on Term (FASTAP 2007)

Updated 12/21/2017

“Preferably in the fifth year and no later than in the sixth year, every non-tenured ladder faculty member will be evaluated for promotion to associate professor on term. The standard for promotion to associate professor on term will be: significant published research and scholarship representing early demonstrations of disciplinary or interdisciplinary leadership; excellent teaching and mentoring of students; and engaged university citizenship. These will be assessed by the relevant Yale departments and programs and by experts outside Yale. Departments are urged to bring strong promotion cases forward in the fifth year or even earlier, but all non-tenured faculty must be reviewed for promotion to associate professor on term by the sixth year.”
