What questions should I ask?

  1. What is expected of me?
  2. In the last 10 years, how many people received tenure?
  3. What were the difference between those who received tenure and those who did not?
  4. What resources exists for helping me achieve my goals
  5. What is the expected level of research, teaching, and service (RTS)? Be sure to quantify what they expect of you. Some schools split the RTS as 40%, 40%, 20%, but what does 40% mean? What does 20%?
  6. Is the evaluation process formal or informal?
  7. How am I going to be evaluated?
  8. Is the evaluation conducted each year or every other year?
