Tips for compiling compelling renewal, tenure dossiers

August 29, 2019

There are a number of steps faculty can take to make their renewal or tenure dossiers more compelling, writes Courtney Guerra. In addition to starting well ahead of time, Guerra begins by suggesting that granular details such as file formats are just as important as big-picture issues about the research statement, publications, and teaching dossier. Advice from senior colleagues about the department’s current best practices can also help demystify the process. Guerra also recommends that faculty save emails from colleagues and students, as these documents can provide valuable evidence about teaching and research during the review process. Finally, Guerra emphasizes that although the review is stressful, the department wants faculty to succeed. Inside Higher Ed (International)
