Syllabus Statements and Template

The Syllabus statements and template have been updated to reflect the university's current Covid-19 safety guidelines (May 2022).

Portfolio Guidelines and Preparation

Slides from the information sessions held last week. The purpose was to provide participants with an overview of the guidelines for preparing a portfolio for reappointment, tenure, and promotion, and to consider ideas for their approach to portfolio preparation.

University information regarding portfolios is available on the Provost’s website; tip: start with the Portfolio Guides and FAQs documents. CETL is available to answer questions regarding portfolio preparation during the summer; please contact Amy Chan Hilton.
