Tenure, Confirmation, & Promotion

Tenure designates the status of continuous appointment of faculty members.

Confirmation designates a form of continuous appointment granted to professional librarians and instructors. Both of these are evaluated according to the procedures described in the Collective Agreement.

Promotion refers to the process of moving through the ranks of academic staff, such as from Assistant Professor to Associate Professor, Librarian II to Librarian III, or Instructor II to Instructor III.

CUASA is always happy to provide information and support on the tenure, confirmation and promotion processes. Please contact us for more information, or if you have questions.

Also be sure to check out our Dates & Deadlines page for further details on when applications and referee names are due, and when you can expect to learn if your applications have been successful.

Annual Workshops

Each spring, CUASA hosts workshops to walk members through the process set out in the collective agreement, and share some tips for preparing applications.

If you missed this year’s workshops, and would like to receive a copy of the materials, please contact us.
