Every institution has a different process and sets different standards for tenure. It is even possible that these standards and processes change while you are in the midst of the tenuring process, as administrations change, or as the field of study changes. Many institutions have adopted the three-legged stool approach of faculty assessment—teaching, service, scholarship. Some places expect all legs to be of equal length. Others may assign one leg more importance than the others. There is also the process the institution goes through to assess your accomplishments. Some require the anonymous assessment of an established academic of the discipline. Some have committees who review your package separately. Do you know the process where you are? The type of institution has potential bearing on how this process will go. Carnegie classified R1 institutions may require highly academic research to be executed, with publishing requirements. Private Art & Design institutions are full of creatives who inherently will understand your scholarship, while liberal arts universities may have physics and math academics assessing your efforts. What is/was your experience going through the tenure process? What type of institution is yours? Was/is the process transparent, and does your institution offer support (workshops, mentorship programs, etc.) to help you through the process?
