Academic Portfolio Retreat

Each year, the Office of the Provost and the Reinert Center traditionally co-sponsor an Academic Portfolio Retreat for faculty who are preparing for promotion and/or tenure. This year, we’re pleased to announce the retreat is moving to the fall semester and is being reimagined in a one-day format.

There is no charge for departments or individuals. 

The 2023 Academic Portfolio Retreat will take place on Friday, October 28, 9:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at the COLLAB space in the Cortex. Given the design and focus of the retreat, all sessions will be in person, with no option for virtual participation. 

The day will feature short presentations on key aspects of academic dossiers, generative writing activities to help participants shape their dossier content, and peer feedback opportunities to build community and learn how others frame their professional experiences. 

All registrants are expected to:

  • Be present and participate fully for the whole day
  • Complete short writing/reflection activities before and during the retreat

After the retreat ends, participants will have additional opportunities to connect and write with other attendees if they wish.

Full-time SLU faculty members who are tenure-track, non-tenure track, or already tenured are welcome to participate. Faculty who are preparing for third-year review, tenure review, and promotion review may find the retreat helpful in developing or refining their dossiers. Newer faculty may find the retreat helpful in establishing a foundation for later review processes.

Faculty may register by completing this form no later than Monday, October 10. Note: You must be logged into MySLU to access the form.
