The Narrative Arc: Mapping Your Tenure, Promotion, or Reappointment Statement
October 26 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The processes of promotion, reappointment, and tenure are consistent drivers of faculty stress, consternation, and insecurity. While faculty accomplishments accrue over years and often emerge through an organic process of growth and scholarly interest, the professional statement provides a strategic opportunity to guide your review committee in their analysis of your work. The statement should highlight important themes, identify patterns of contribution across areas, and offer a general frame for interpreting the breadth of your achievements. In short, it’s your opportunity to tell the powerful story of your work. This workshop will offer strategies for shaping myriad faculty accomplishments into a cohesive structure that will present a strong case for tenure, promotion, or reappointment.
