The AAA Executive Board on May 21, 2011 adopted and endorsed a statement on Evaluating Scholarship on Practicing, Applied, Public Interest, and Engaged Anthropology Through Tenure & Promotion.
AAA recognizes the growing number of anthropologists who identify as practicing, applied, public interest, or engaged anthropologists. Departments of anthropology and their home colleges are thus challenged with documenting and evaluating the scholarly nature of this type of work in faculty promotion and tenure decisions. Accordingly, the AAA offers the following guidelines developed for departmental and college T&P committees for the evaluation of scholarship in the realm of practicing, applied, public interest, and engaged anthropology for consideration in tenure cases and promotion to associate and full professor.
