Collegiality and Service for Tenure and Beyond

Author: Franklin H. Silverman Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/11/2003

This book candidly provides assistant professors and graduate sutdents contemplating a career in academia with practical information that will facilitate their meeting collegiality and service expectations for promotion and tenure. The focus is on meeting departmental and institutional expectations for collegiality and service. While a superior record for collegiality and service are unlikely to compensate for a weak teaching or publishing record, an inadequate record for one or both of these can result in denial of tenure and promotion. Following the recommendations in this book can substantially increase the likelihood of meeting collegiality and service expectations.
