This LAS Policy outlines the requirements that an Instructor who is a candidate for promotion
must fulfill in order to be considered for promotion to Senior Instructor. It also makes as specific as reasonable those requirements that the Instructor's supervisor (Chair or Director, depending upon the Primary Unit's structure) must follow when preparing and submitting the dossier/recommendation. It also references a standing committee of the LAS Faculty called the Dean's Instructor Review Committee (DIRC) which has been established to act as an advisory group to the Dean in Instructor promotions and other matters. More information on the DIRC can be found under the LAS Policies at http://www.uccs.edu/Documents/las/LAS_PoliciesVersion12010.pdf.
This document also makes recommendations designed to make the promotion process more transparent and accessible to the Instructor and the supervisor. Nothing in this document shall be construed or interpreted as being in conflict with any future University policies concerning Instructor promotions but rather as an augment to them.
