Dear Professor N:
It is a pleasure to inform you of my intention to recommend you for tenure and promotion to Associate Professor. Your credentials will be forwarded to the University Secretary on November 26th to be distributed to the all-University Promotion and Tenure Committee.
ETA: Thanks everyone! I still have to be approved at the university level, but I've been told that the College is the biggest hurdle. I came home and have been relaxing, but am quite distressed that my laptop seems to be dead. I am trying to create a Boot CD, because it won't even start. Maybe I'll be buying that new MacBook sooner than I thought!
