Tenure, Permanent Status, and Promotion

There has been a major change in the time that an agent may wait for Permanent status.

Permanent status and promotion are major forms of recognition of accomplishments and contributions by faculty in accordance with the mission and objectives of UF/IFAS, and in accordance with procedures of the University academic community. Therefore, UF/IFAS makes every effort to base its recommendations for permanent status and promotion on careful and judicious procedures which guarantee faculty rights and responsibilities established in the University's rule and which enable UF/IFAS to reward scholarship and professional achievement.

IFAS Human Resources is responsible for ensuring that the UF/IFAS permanent status and promotion procedures are listed at this web site (UF/IFAS Permanent Status and Promotion Guidelines)
