  • This report summarizes the results of a survey exploring four STEM departments that have engaged in meaningful reforms in academic systems of reward and advancement including promotion and tenure (P&T). The survey was administered as part of a study seeking to expose the strengths and challenges of reform efforts by understanding the lived experiences of faculty and graduate trainees. The four departments are relatively large (>40 faculty), and are situated in public, very high research activity (Carnegie R1) institutions located in relatively small, suburban or rurally-situated college towns in the Northwest and Midwest United States. It aims to provide insights into faculty and student perceptions of and experiences with departmental level practices. University leaders and those working on national-scale initiatives to improve reward and advancement in higher education may find these results useful.
