Special Teachers Talking - Writing Effective Tenure/Promotion/3rd Year Review Letters. Join us for a Special Teachers Talking on Monday, September 15th. One singular element of the tenure/promotion/3rd year review process at Gustavus is the invitation (and sometimes requirement) that faculty write letters for their colleagues undergoing review. Beyond the request that "letters should address the candidate's qualifications for the criteria", we receive little guidance about how to write letters that the Personnel Committee and 3rd Year Review Committee find useful in the review process. All of that changes now! Join current and former Personnel Committee members for a conversation about the characteristics of effective review letters, what works, what to avoid, and lots more. Program at 11:30 am and again at 12:30 pm. Free lunch at Three Crowns buffet, meet in the Heritage Room.
