Promotion is generally a completely separate consideration than tenure. At some institutions, promotion coincides with tenure approval, while at others, promotion can happen even before tenure has been approved. There is also a difference among the types of employment agreements. Contract faculty and typically adjunct faculty do not have tenure. But often there is the possibility for promotion. Is the three-legged stool (research, teaching, service) considered for your promotion assessment? How does promotion work at your institution and what are the things that are expected of you to receive a promotion? Are the standards and requirements different for each level? Do they look at things, such as impact factor and influence on the discipline? What are the types of documents you are expected to supply? Are committees and outside reviewers involved?
