2018-2019 Promotion Guidelines (to Associate Professor and Professor)

Academic promotion at the University of Toronto is based on accomplishments in scholarship, which may be expressed as research and/or creative professional activity, teaching, and service to the University. The greatest weight will be given to scholarship and teaching. Long-term service in and of its own does not qualify for academic promotion.
