    Click here to view the new templates. 

    What you need to know:

    • Tenure track faculty who are going up for promotion from assistant to associate professor before the Biological Science Committee must use this format immediately.
    • Through the 2024 promotions cycle it is not required that CHS and CT track faculty use the new template unless they wish to do so. Starting May 1, 2024, all CVs must be submitted to the promotion committees using this format. 
    • New faculty members are strongly encouraged to use this CV template immediately for recording their academic, teaching, service, and outreach activities at SMPH.

    This template can also be found on the OFAD Preparing for Promotion page (scroll down to the Faculty Promotion Toolkit icon), or the Faculty HR Policies and Resources page. Instructions are included in the first page and the template follows.

    Developing Educators

    UW Center for Teaching, Learning, and Mentoring (CTLM) 

    Bringing together more than 50 professional staff members with extensive and wide-ranging expertise, the center will serve instructors at all career stages by offering campus-level professional development, course design, and instructional consulting programs and services. Diversity, equity, and inclusion will be at the core of this work. The center aims to support all instructors as we work together to provide equitable learning experiences in the pursuit of inclusive excellence and to foster a sense of belonging for all students.

    How to Connect with the Center

    The center will continue to offer some familiar professional development programs -- for example, Madison Teaching and Learning Excellence (MTLE) and TeachOnline@UW -- as well as some new opportunities to support instructors’ work now and into the future.

    If you’re not sure which of the above opportunities is right for you or you’re looking for a different kind of engagement or instructional support, you can request a consultation.
