A brief narrative to support the full-time faculty employment figure:

UM6P is a young performant institution inaugurated in 2017. The UM6P adopted a top down approach aiming at developing research and educational programs and puting research and innovation at the forefront of the sustainable development of Africa and more sustainable world.
As the UM6P is a young institution, to meet the demand of our educational programs we use the services of outside affiliate professors from renowned institutions such as Université Cadi Ayyad, HEC Paris, MIT, MINES Paris Tech…
Furthermore, the UM6P tenure track was developed since 2018. It is a professor’s pathway to promotion and academic job security. It’s the process by which a PhD becomes a Post Doc, then a Research & Educational Fellow, then an Assistant Professor, then an associate professor before becoming a full professor (please see the attachment). A PhD is the entry-level tenure-track position; lecturers and adjuncts are not on the tenure-track.

UM6P Tenure Review Process :
The tenure review evaluates the academic staff contributions in three areas: research, teaching, and the university service. Before the start of the review process, the academic staff has to put together a file tenure. The dossier typically includes a CV, list of publications, comprehensive teaching portfolio, tenure statement, list of awards and grants and details of university service. The departmental tenure committee will also solicit external letters of review from prominent senior scholars in the field. The external reviewers will evaluate the academic staff work and impact on the field to make a recommendation about whether they should be awarded tenure.
Once the external letters of review are received, the departmental tenure committee will review the dossier and the department head make a recommendation on the tenure application. In the next step, the tenure dossier will go to the campus committee, and ultimately the provost who will make the tenure decision. If the academic staff is awarded tenure, they are also usually promoted.
