>I’m going up for tenure and promotion this year, a year early.
What’s that, you say? Why haven’t I mentioned this before? Because I think I’m in denial. The file is due in 3 weeks, and other than asking my chair to arrange outside letters many months ago, I haven’t done a thing.
The other sign of my denial: I just finished making to-do lists for the semester and putting deadlines on my calendar, and the one deadline I forgot was the tenure file deadline. And it’s sooner than any others.
(I’m sure there will be future posts on this topic, btw.)
