About Lerner College

Faculty Documents & Policies

The Lerner College promotion and tenure and workload policies, which are consistent with the Lerner College mission, are in place to manage and support faculty members over the progression of their careers, including teaching assignment and intellectual expectations, and the formal periodic review, promotion and reward processes. In addition, annual performance evaluation and planning processes, information on two- and four-year reviews and contract renewals and explanations of post tenure reviews may be found in the UD Faculty Handbook online at http://www.udel.edu/provost/fachb/. Department chairs are held accountable to follow the guidelines in the UD Faculty Handbook to ensure adequate student-faculty contact across learning experiences and set high expectations for instructional effectiveness. At the department level, criteria specific to the faculty appraisal process is outlined in department-specific promotion and tenure documents.

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.4 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Fund, a student-managed restaurant and hotel, a high-technology development center of a global bank and a start-up experience for students with new business ideas.

Lerner College faculty - like Anu Sivaraman, who is among Social Media Marketing Magazine’s “Top 100 Marketing Professors on Twitter” and MBAprograms.org’s “Top 50 Marketing Professors on Twitter” - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.

All Lerner College departments offer experience-driven learning and emphasize evidence-based analytics methods to enrich the student experience. Here, finance students visit New York City’s financial districts for a first-hand look at markets trading and to meet with UD alumni.
