Guide your committee and present a strong, cohesive case for your promotion.
The processes of promotion, reappointment, and tenure are consistent drivers of faculty stress. However, learning how to write a professional statement effectively can alleviate some of that pressure. The professional statement is a strategic opportunity to tell the powerful story of your hard-won accomplishments over the years and 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. This course will provide strategies for shaping your myriad accomplishments into a cohesive structure that presents a strong case for tenure, promotion, or reappointment.
The following lessons are included with this course.
- 27 minutes of video
- 8 short videos
- Guiding questions throughout the video course to help you complete your statement
- Valued at $395. Free for members.
