  7. Peer University List for P&T

    Redefine the wording in the PTA document to give the untenured more info.

    One idea is to use the top 25 listed in ARL as a guide. The untenured should also look for specialist in their field and balance between institutions and experts. It was also suggested that we compile a list of institutions that have provided letters to successful cases.

    Mary Laskowski will go back to PTA and come up with alternate language to bring back to EC.
