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

Important Update

This year (2021), all submissions for tenure, promotion, and contract renewal will include electronic submission

  • This will involve uploading a pdf or word document of materials.
  • Scanning of documents can be arranged with our Duplicating Services (, 235-7301).

See the 2021 Announcements page for more information. 


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)
