This Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure (APT) Toolkit is designed to aid early-career faculty, department chairs, and APT committees in recognizing supporting, and rewarding interdisciplinary research and collaboration at the University of Washington, specifically across the Health Science Schools and the College of Engineering. The APT Toolkit provides strategies, templates, and exemplars, including:

  • Standardized language and definitions to incorporate into APT criteria
  • Goal/Self Advocacy Statement
  • Curriculum Vitae highlighting interdisciplinary research efforts
  • Promotion Letters
  • UW Structures and Policies to aid interdisciplinary research

The APT Toolkit was developed by the Institute for Translational Health Sciences (ITHS) Team Science Core and colleagues. The Toolkit is a living document that will be updated as more information, feedback, and examples of successful promotion and tenure of team science-focused researchers are gathered.
