Academic Portfolio Retreat
Each year, the Office of Academic Affairs and the Reinert Center co-sponsor a two-day Academic Portfolio Retreat, designed to assist faculty in the preparation of third-year review, tenure, or promotion dossiers.The retreat is facilitated by Marilyn Miller, Ph.D., formerly the director of the University of Missouri Program for Excellence in Teaching and an educational consultant at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Dr. Miller is co-author of Building an Academic Portfolio: A Guided Workbook, a practical, hands-on guide for developing a dossier, which participants will receive at the retreat.
During the retreat, participants will write about, reflect on, and organize evidence of their teaching, research, and service, in preparation for third-year, tenure, or promotion review. The retreat also provides faculty with an opportunity to come together across disciplines, as a teaching and research community, for conversation and mentoring. Participants will begin working on a preliminary draft of their academic portfolio.
