Expectations for full-time tenure-track faculty members at the University of Oregon are consistent with those of other major research universities:
(1) sustained high-quality, innovative scholarship in faculty member's discipline, demonstrated through a record of concrete, accumulated research or creative accomplishment;
(2) effective, stimulating teaching and meaningful contributions to ensuring academic success for undergraduates and graduate students;
(3) steady responsible service and leadership to faculty member's students and department, university, and professional discipline more broadly.
The University of Oregon follows the general timetable, process, and standards of performance for evaluation and promotion as many other public research universities, particularly AAU institutions. UO also considers and adheres to AAUP guidelines to the extent possible.
