UC Irvine faculty in the Professor of Teaching (PoT) series are Academic Senate members who devote the majority of their effort to teaching. They also play an important role in the research/creative activity and the service mission of the University.
APM 210-3 contains general instructions to review committees, which advise on actions concerning the Lecturer with Security of Employment Series. The criteria set forth in the APM are documented as minimum standards by which to judge the candidate in the UC merit and promotion process (APM 210-3c). The UCI Campus formally adopted the working title of Professor of Teaching for this series in 2018. What follows are campus wide guidelines that clarify the areas of review, effort, and expectations in the merit and promotion process for PoT faculty at UC Irvine. The process used in development of guidelines is detailed in the Background section of this page. All items listed in the general Guidance for Faculty on Preparing Files page are relevant for both Professors of Teaching and Professor series.
