    Supporting Inclusive Recognition of

    Innovation & Entrepreneurship

    An overview of the Promotion & Tenure -

    Innovation & Entrepreneurship (PTIE) effort

    Wednesday, November 15, 2023

    11am-noon PT (2-3pm ET)

    All are welcome - please feel free to share this event notice.


    Universities today can, and should, enable greater contributions toward solving society's critical

    problems while also boosting academic excellence. To do so, universities must ensure that promotion and tenure processes fairly assess and value entrepreneurial, innovative endeavors that can produce the kind of societal impacts that universities are increasingly being called on to provide.

    Oregon State University, with support from the U.S. National Science Foundation, facilitated a national conversation on how to inclusively recognize innovation and entrepreneurship impact by university faculty in promotion, tenure, and advancement guidelines and practices. This led to the creation of the Promotion & Tenure - Innovation & Entrepreneurship (PTIE ) effort, which now involves more than 65 U.S. institutions and numerous national stakeholder organizations. This work  has resulted in a comprehensive set of recommendations for promotion and tenure reform

    Webinar speakers Rich Carter and Almesha Campbell will describe the networked-systems approach PTIE has taken to develop a nationwide coalition. They will share how universities can use the resulting framework to better align the intellectual capabilities of their faculty with an innovation economy, and how the strategy can be broadly applicable, beyond innovation and entrepreneurship, to recognize the many and evolving dimensions along which faculty create societal impacts.
