Annual reviews, promotion, and tenure
We are committed to providing faculty with opportunities for advancement, including tenure, as well as an evaluation system that provides feedback to improve and enhance performance.
Update: COVID-19 impacts on tenure applications
Northern Arizona University recognizes the significant impact COVID-19 might have on faculty working toward tenure and continuing status. Therefore, we are offering an optional process for requesting a one-year extension of the promotion clock to all tenure-eligible or continuing-status eligible candidates.
