The ADAA office is requiring that all candidates complete their CV in a standard format, to be submitted to external reviewers when soliciting letters and within the casebook. The 2020-21 CV for instructional track or research professor track promotions should be created in SmartPath (https://engin-umich.mntnpass.com/cv). The pdf version of the CV may be used as reference. Please note we are making updates to the CV module with changes to be complete by mid-June. Departments will be notified when changes have been made. If promotion candidates and their departments need help in building CVs, please contact the ADAA Office for assistance.
Please note that promotion casebooks will be due in the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs (ADAA) office no later than Monday, November 11, 2020 at noon. The casebook review meeting with the CoE Executive Committee, Department Chairs and Associate Deans will be held Thursday, January 21 and Friday, January 22, 2021. Additional information (location, agenda) will be provided in early January.
If you have any questions regarding casebook content or SmartPath, please contact Sherry Hall (firstname.lastname@example.org, 647-7018).
