Here are a few reminders about the 2023-2024 process: faculty members have the option again this year to include a COVID Impact Statement in the dossier; the list of grant activity for the dossier (currently referred to as the RADAR report) will be available from Research Enterprise Data (RED) modules through a SAS Visual Analytics-generated RPT report; and, as a reminder, the new template for requesting external evaluations in RPT is now required. For a summary of these changes and reminders please visit the Current Year Details page on the RPT website.

Colleges will soon receive an electronic summary of all the mandatory cases by department. Corrections and any anticipated non-mandatory cases should be added to the summary and returned to Amy Jinnette by August 4, 2023. Additional non-mandatory cases can be added after August 4, as long as the dossiers are complete and uploaded to the website by the college’s deadline.

Thank you for helping us maintain a reappointment, promotion and tenure process that is supportive of faculty excellence. As always, please contact Katharine Stewart ( or Amy Jinnette ( in my office with any questions.
