Tenure dossier

27 Sep

Janet D. Stemwedel from Adventures in Ethics and Science publishes photographs of the three-ring binder containing her tenure dossier. She ends this post with the sentence: “I seem to recall that there are important aspects of life that you can’t cram into a three-hole punch.”

The dossier itself more or less captures the teaching/scholarship/service categories impressed on us as faculty newbies. The faculty member preparing a dossier is handed a set of eight uniform dividers for a three-ring binder. Four of these impose the main structure on the materials the faculty member assembles, marking out sections dealing with teaching effectiveness, service to students and the university, scholarly or creative activity, and what amounts to service within or related to your field of scholarship.
