The University's academic promotion process recognises and rewards the demonstration of excellence in the work of our academic staff in support of the University Strategy and in line with our University values.
The academic promotion process is designed to be fair, transparent and inclusive and is applicable to staff within the Research and Teaching (research and teaching, teaching and curriculum leadership and research) job family, including seconded staff in UNMC and UNNC.
The University is committed to ensuring that the academic promotion process recognises and rewards excellence in all staff, including those with protected characteristics. We, therefore, welcome promotion applications from everyone who believes they meet the criteria and particularly staff from underrepresented groups.
The University's promotion criteria focuses on three broad areas of activity:
- research and scholarship
- teaching and curriculum leadership
- university and academic service, including good citizenship and collegiality in support of both colleagues and students, leadership, and the advancement of the University’s global, EDI, knowledge exchange and civic work agendas
For further details, please refer to the academic promotion procedure and guidance below.
