Research and Scholarship for Promotion, Tenure, and Reappointments in Schools of Architecture

White Paper


The ACSA Research & Scholarship Committee led efforts to compile a comprehensive document on policies for tenure and promotion in architecture schools. ACSA Member programs can use this statement as a reference point for the development of their own tenure policies, based on local conditions. The document addresses multiple forms of scholarship, including the scholarship of design, the scholarship of engagement, and evaluating faculty practice projects.
