Computing Faculty Tenure and Promotion Requirements at U.S. and Canadian Post-Secondary Institutions

  • In this study, we address the question of what tenure and promotion requirements for computing faculty exist at U.S. and Canadian institutions. Via a survey sent to approximately 7500 computing faculty at the 256 institutions on the Forsythe list that forms the basis of the annual Taulbee Survey, we examined characteristics of and differences in promotion and tenure requirements at U.S. and Canadian institutions. Our results identify several hidden tenure/promotion requirements that can be important for computing faculty to know. Our results also show significant differences in requirements for the number of publications, venue ranking and scope, refereed conferences and non-refeered journals, and collaborative publications and grants across various types of instititutions. This work provides a basis for further study of whether faculty receive support congruent with their promotion and tenure requirements.
