Menendez, Miguel; And Others
Designed by librarians and administrators of the Florida International University in compliance with the requirements of the Florida Board of Regents, this document contains a list of responsibilities, policies, and procedures for the promotion process in library administration. It is noted that the promotion decision is one of the most important decisions in which a professional in higher education may be involved, and therefore should be conducted in a positive atmosphere with adequate provision of time and other resources. The following topics are covered: (1) responsibilities of participants, including individual librarians, their colleagues, department head/supervisor, library director, promotion committee, and president; (2) promotion policies, including basic criteria such as education, experience, and job performance, as well as specific criteria by rank and policies governing the composition of the promotion committee; and (3) promotion procedures, including documentation, application for promotion, promotion file contents, job performance evaluation, and meetings of the promotion committee. Appendices include a form for promotion recommendations, a candidate's promotion application form, instructional and research class specifications for specific positions, and a list of research, scholarly, or creative activities that would count toward promotion together with definitions of each.
