Welcome to the BioSci Office of Academic Personnel

About Our Services

Our office oversees all faculty appointments, as well as review of merit, promotion, and advancement files for senate and non-senate faculty. We are available for consultation with faculty, department chairs, and departmental review committees regarding strategies for file review.


Academic Review

Merits & Promotion

BioSci Faculty Mentoring Program

Together with the Equity Advisor, we have implemented a school-wide junior faculty mentoring program as well as an ad hoc mentoring program for midcareer faculty. We support new faculty with on-boarding and establishing mentoring committees. We hold quarterly meetings with junior faculty.

Academic Review Guidelines

We have developed a set of school guidelines for preparing academic review files. The guidelines are consistent with the broad criteria for professional advancement set out by the Office of Academic Personnel and reflect our four academic units’ best practices resulting in successful review of faculty in the School of Biological Sciences.

Meetings are by scheduled appointments only.
