Dossier Hui Resources: Timeline

Guidelines, tips, and more to help WCC faculty with preparing their applications for contract renewal, promotion, tenure and 5-year review.

On Dossiers

"The higher goal, however, is not to create a portfolio for someone to examine once a year or once every few years for the narrow purpose of securing a salary raise or a promotion or the golden fleece of tenure. The real purpose is to examine yourself constantly, to emerge from the process of creating or redoing the portfolio as a better, more aware person and teacher than when you started out." -- Louis Schmier (source)
