2017 Academic Promotions round for levels C, D and E

The academic promotions round for levels C, D and E is now open. Applications must be completed by 5pm Friday 28 July.

Academic Promotions Procedures

The Academic Promotions Procedures were approved by the Provost on 4 April 2017.

The Procedures revision includes the introduction of Faculty-based panels for the review of academic promotions to level C. The intent of this change is for the Faculties to have the authority and accountability for academic promotion to level C. This process is in keeping with Go8 and other ATN Universities.

To ensure an equitable process Academic Board will appoint for each panel a:

  • common Chair (i.e. same person for each Panel); and
  • Professor external to the Faculty (i.e. different Professor for each Panel).

The Panels will recommend applicants for promotion to the Provost for approval. This is in keeping with the approval process for levels D and E where the University Academic Promotions Committee (UAPC) recommend applicants for promotion to the Vice-Chancellor.

This change in process will enable the UAPC members to better concentrate their efforts on reviewing applications for academic promotion to levels D and E expected to have leadership roles within the University community. Conversely, a Panel will be able to concentrate on the review of level C applications.

It is intended that the changes will assist in the support of improved gender equity, in particular the promotion of women to Associate Professor and Professor.
