I went for Associate after year 4.
Jennifer Hoppough
15:29
External Reviewers should be outside of UAF. And, you should always provide more than 2 name to your Dean’s offices.
Carrie Stevens
15:35
I see your question @ Zöe and @ Douglas and will ask
Laura Zimin
15:36
Assistant Professor
Jennifer Hoppough
16:33
The reason to have more than 2 names is because we find that sometimes the deans’ or director’s may not get any responses from those two external reviewers. So, always have 2 additional reviewers ready.
Carrie Stevens
17:27
Gay, I see you have a question/comment.
Carrie Stevens
17:39
And there are 2 questions in the chat following Gay.
Deana Waters
26:43
What exactly do the external reviewers look at in providing their letter of support?
Hishinlai' Peter
27:23
What if you work with tribes or communities? Could you use them as an outside reviewer?
Laura Carsten Conner
27:35
Deana, you are asked to provide a CV and in some cases 1-2 pubs
Deana Waters
28:01
@Laura, I'm bipartite so no publications
Jennifer Hoppough
28:37
For your CVs, make sure to include links to your publications.
Laura Carsten Conner
28:46
Can someone with a teaching/service appt chime in here?
Jennifer Hoppough
28:50
These CVs are emailed, and they can easily click on these hyperlinks.
Laura Carsten Conner
29:09
Is it the CV alone for that type of bipartite appt?
Carrie Stevens
30:29
I see your question as well @ Hishinlai.
Jennifer Hoppough
30:34
Some units for bipartite faculty also include the unit criteria with the CV so that external reviewers have a better understanding of the kind of review they can provide for the faculty member.
Hishinlai' Peter
30:44
Mahsi', Carrie.
Carrie Stevens
30:54
After Laura’s comments I will follow up
Carrie Stevens
31:23
And I haven’t lost @ Douglas question.
Hishinlai' Peter
31:43
Peter
Deana Waters
34:29
Are there internal (UAF) reviewers other than unit or UWC in this process?
Jennifer Hoppough

https://uaf.edu/provost/resources/promotion-tenure.php
Carrie Stevens
37:00
Thank you Jennifer! Jennifer is supportive and responsive to faculty questions as well!
Zoë Marie Jones
38:32
If you went through 4th year review and that went well can you essentially just update your file and narrative or do you need to start from scratch?
Srijan Aggarwal
38:53
Zoe: I think that is what is typically done.
Srijan Aggarwal
39:13
So, yes, you don’t start from scratch.
Courtney Carothers
39:16
Zoe: definitely build on your 4th year file, no need to start again!
Courtney Carothers
39:41
Any advice you got from 4th year review, show how you responded to that
Zoë Marie Jones
40:22
Thank you!
Gay Sheffield
45:10
What is the best advice for an Associate going for Promotion file?
Courtney Carothers
46:40
Great points Art — keeping track of anything pertinent in a folder, also keeping your CV current - adding any guest lectures, invited talks, service engagements, everything and anything - really good for annual activities reporting as well
Art Nash
47:22
Appreciated…
Hishinlai' Peter
48:59
I'll become an assistant this coming Fall. Is that when I have to begin collecting all of the information?
Jennifer Hoppough
49:59
Hishinlai’—it depends on how many years of service you have counted towards your tenure clock.
Douglas Cost (he, his) UAF SOE- Troth Yeddha Campus
50:27
I’ve heard that it is presumptuous to go early and that the review committee is much more critical.
Glenna Gannon
50:27
What’s the
Glenna Gannon
50:34
“Bitter end”?
Jennifer Hoppough
50:53
If you were a term instructor for, let’s say 10 years, and you counted 3 years of service towards your tenure clock, then you can go up for your pre-tenure going into your 4th year.
Jennifer Hoppough
51:54
Patrick is correct. It will depend on your contract with your dean/director regarding your tenure clock agreement.
Philip Wight
53:21
I'm a non TT faculty who is hoping to one day be TT. Are there other relevant TT criteria (like counting work done prior to getting on a TT track) that you'd recommend negotiating? What do you wish you would have known BEFORE you got on the TT track? Thanks
Chisato Murakami
53:34
I see. Thank you, Jen.
Jennifer Hoppough
53:34
Also, consider your classification of going from bipartite to tripartite. You’ll want to be able to build your research component to meet your unit criteria if you did not have the research component as a bipartite faculty.
Srijan Aggarwal
54:03
Glenna: I think by “bitter end” Julie meant the mandatory year you are supposed to stand for tenure. In some units, you really need to demonstrate success if you are going early - so is more common to go during that mandatory year.
Carrie Stevens
57:13
Thank you Jennifer and Panelists for fielding the chat questions!
Carrie Stevens
58:38
I see your question as well @Phllip.
Srijan Aggarwal
59:30
Philip: another thing to consider while you are starting on a TT position is your mandatory tenure year. Usually this is clearly defined but can be a bit negotiable if you are starting in the middle of an academic year (did happen with me).
Jennifer Hoppough
01:00:00
You must notify your Dean or Director your intent to go up early for promotion/tenure before the end of the contract date before May 8.
Julie Maier
01:00:09
Still 10%
Glenna Gannon
01:05:07
Carrie, can you please summarize that in the chat for us term-funded folks.
Carrie Stevens
01:06:00
I’ll try Glenna!
Glenna Gannon
01:06:07
Ah, I think I understand based on Julie’s comment
Carrie Stevens
01:07:52
As a term-funded faculty you should operate as if you are tenure-track if that is your long term goal. Then, if you are appointed to a tenure track position you can negotiate how many years of your term-funded work count towards yours tenure track position.
Julie Maier
01:09:34
I actually was a tripartite term-funded Biology professor beginning in 2005 and then became a bipartite tenure-track developmental math professor in 2010. I did not use my work record as a Biology professor in my file when I went up for tenure and promotion as a developmental math professor.
Hishinlai' Peter
01:10:40
Thank you Patrick. I appreciate that.
Glenna Gannon
01:11:03
@Carrie - Thank you for summary!
Philip Wight
01:11:21
Thanks all for your insights-- this is very helpful!
Srijan Aggarwal
01:11:30
Thanks Gay. This is my question also.
Courtney Carothers
01:13:30
Peer evaluations for teaching are important - can ask for letter if you do a guest lecture for a colleague’s class
Carrie Stevens
01:16:26
I see you Laura and Courtney.
Julie Maier
01:19:39
Exactly. And the university-wide will definitely look at those unit criteria as well as workloads to determine if promotion is appropriate.
Gay Sheffield
01:19:47
https://www.uaf.edu/provost/resources/promotion-tenure.php Scroll down towards the bottom for UAF Unit Criteria
Julie Maier
01:21:23
Yes - having at least two peer reviews of your teaching is important.
heidorader
01:25:41
I have a couple of questions on peer review—should the reviewer be in your department, at UAF, or at another institution? And do they just peruse an Online class?
Scott Goddard
01:26:34
Could a former teacher act as an external reviewer?
Patrick Marlow
01:27:03
Defome
Patrick Marlow
01:27:14
Deine former teacher
Srijan Aggarwal
01:27:26
For peer reviews of teaching: other faculty members from your department or college. Outside the college are ok as well, but is advisable to have some review within the department/college.
Carrie Stevens
01:27:51
Thank you Srijan.
heidorader
01:28:03
Okay thanks!
Carrie Stevens
01:28:04
@ Scott please define ‘former teacher?'
Julie Maier
01:30:53
Yep, me too!
Glenna Gannon
01:31:09
Follow up Q for Art and other Bipartite (no teaching appointment) folks - would you ask for peer review/ evaluation for non-credit classes/ workshops that fulfill service appointments?
Jennifer Hoppough
01:31:18
Scott, if you mean “former UAF Faculty Member” —the answer would any former UAF faculty member would not be acceptable as an external reviewer.
Jennifer Hoppough
01:31:27
*be
Scott Goddard
01:33:47
No a teacher at my Alma mater
Jennifer Hoppough
01:34:31
External reviewers are usually are within your discipline.
Anja Kade
01:35:53
I work at UAF. Would a UAA faculty member qualify as an external reviewer?
Courtney Carothers
01:38:19
I echo that appreciation to you Jennifer! You have always been so gracious and helpful! Thank you so much!
Amanda White (she/her)
01:38:56

Carrie Stevens
01:40:42
Last call for questions?
Douglas Cost (he, his) UAF SOE- Troth Yeddha Campus
01:41:13
Who wants to be my mentor?
Douglas Cost (he, his) UAF SOE- Troth Yeddha Campus
01:41:48
That was presumptuous….
Carrie Stevens
01:42:10
LOL Douglas! Love it!
Jennifer Hoppough

Even as an adjunct, I could have been writing publications since I completed my masters
Douglas Cost (he, his) UAF SOE- Troth Yeddha Campus
01:46:08
found it- https://www.uaf.edu/provost/resources/promotion-tenure.php
Amy Topkok (she/her)
01:46:12
More peer-reviewed publications (more specific)
Carrie Stevens
01:47:36
Thanks Douglas!
Carrie Stevens
01:48:56
Yes @ Amy, including all of your work in your CV and remember that as you move into tenure track you negotiate the work you have completed that is included!
Carrie Stevens
01:49:11
So inspiring Courtney and Laura! Basee!
Curry Cunningham
01:50:56
Thank you! Hearing these messages is incredibly inspiring as new faculty, and helps to humanize the process and the challenges therein.
Amy Topkok (she/her)
01:52:15
Even when getting published in a peer-review process, it takes months and even up to a year before it is actually published. Thank you for "publish early" comment Srijan
Carrie Stevens
01:52:41
Yes, as you are the expert Amy!
Douglas Cost (he, his) UAF SOE- Troth Yeddha Campus
01:52:41
