The Office of Faculty Affairs conducts a review for all assistant professors and assistant research scientists in their current third-year faculty track. This review is separate and in addition to the faculty member's annual department review.
The third-year review is mandatory for Research track faculty. Reviews are conducted by Lisa Prosser, Ph.D., Assistant Dean for Research Faculty.
The third-year review provides an opportunity to discuss any concerns that a faculty member may have in their academic life and help to identify strengths or potential weaknesses. Information will also be provided about the Medical School promotion process.
Faculty within their third year can expect to be contacted via email, initially, in September to initiate the process of coordinating a third-year review meeting with their respective assistant dean.
Reviews may occur at the beginning or the end of a faculty member's third year, depending upon the U-M faculty start date.
