Join us on Thursday, September 12 for Teachers Talking; topic: Writing Effective Tenure/Promotion/3rd Year Review Letters.
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 Casey Elledge (current Personnel Committee chair), Paul Saulnier (past chair), and Marie Walker (past chair) for a conversation about the characteristics of effective review letters, what works, what to avoid, and lots more.
Program at 11:30 and again at 12:30. Free lunch at the buffet, then meet in the St. Peter Room.
