Writing Dossier Statements

Wed, Sep 20, 2023, 10:00 – 11:00 AM MDT
Webinar link will be sent in the confirmation email  

Are you beginning to prepare for promotion and/or tenure? One of the most important things you can do to support your success is focusing your time & energy on your dossier statements. (If you discuss your dossier individually with us in the CFDA, we'll tell you, "It's all about the dossier statements!")

At this session, we'll learn best practices for writing strong, succinct statements. We'll discuss factors such as responding to your primary unit criteria, highlighting your strengths, and responding to suggestions from any past evaluations you've had.

We'll structure our conversation around the four main statements used in most CU Denver dossiers:

  • Summary statement
  • Research/Creative activities statement
  • Teaching statement (or the Librarianship statement for librarians!)
  • Service statement

At the end, we'll have time for questions and conversation.

Audience: This program was created with the CFDA's Tenure Preparation Group in mind. However, all faculty are welcome!
