Department of Extension Faculty Promotion and Tenure

Faculty in the Department of Extension represent subject matter from the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences; the College of Education and Human Ecology; the College of Veterinary Medicine (and others), and are an integral part of The Ohio State University. To maintain this strength, careful consideration is afforded to the promotion of faculty as they progress through their Extension careers. Achievement of promotion and/or tenure requires a record of excellence in past performance and a promising forecast that a faculty member’s intellectual vitality and future contributions will continue to be of high quality.
