TIPS

Common errors made in completing faculty appointment applications and some tips to prevent them:

  • Application bypasses the proper channels (i.e. The Regional Dean’s office and the Vice Dean for Academic Affairs office) and is sent directly to the Department. Application should be initiated in the appropriate regional office, and sent to the Academic Affairs office in Seattle for review and letter of recommendation from the Vice Dean for Academic Affairs in Seattle.
  • Biography form should be completed entirely, and should not say “See CV.”
  •  Incomplete or missing documents.  Some examples given by the Departments are:
  • CV is not turned in.
  • Second page of the biography form is not filled out.
  • Signatures are omitted.
  • Board certification information is missing.
  • Non-originals, such as a copies or faxes, are submitted in place of originals.
  • No clear explanation of faculty contribution to the program or the number of hours they are involved.
  • CV should be in typed in the UW format to prevent kickback from the Dean’s office.
