The Board of Assessors

2024/04/30

The Board of Assessors is in charge of dealing with and giving verdicts on the requests of faculty members regarding promotion (assistant professor, associate professor and professor), using sabbaticals, assessing the state of academic stagnation and calculating service records (contractual service records before a change in the employment status to probationary permanent for faculty members or service records in the expert tenure for experts whose employment status has changed to faculty members) according to the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology’s bylaws. The Board assesses requests and gives verdicts on them after evaluating the quality of applicants’ cultural‐educational-social, academic, research-technological and scientific-executive activities. Thus, the cultural-educational-social activities (Article 1) of applicants will initially be assessed by the Specialized Commission of Article 1 and the academic, research-technological and scientific-executive activities (Articles 2 to 4) will initially be assessed by the Selected Committee of a faculty, then by the Specialized Commission of the Board of Assessors and eventually by the Board of Assessors. Selecting real members for the Council of Distinguished Professor Selection to assess each file is another responsibility of the Board of Assessors.
