Appendix D: The Statement for Outside Evaluators
Candidates whose review requires outside evaluators must submit a Statement for Outside Evaluators for inclusion with the scholarly or artistic materials being sent for outside review. This statement should place their scholarship or artistic activity in a fuller context for scholars or practitioners in their field and may be comprised of the section of the Personal Statement discussing such activity (see Appendix C), or may be a new statement written for this purpose. In preparing the Statement for Outside Evaluators, candidates should keep in mind that the outside evaluators, usually experts in the candidate’s area of specialization, are charged with the specific task of reviewing scholarly or artistic activity, and do not receive the Personal Statement that details teaching and service to the college. Candidates may incorporate commentary on these areas of endeavor only if they directly bear upon their scholarly or artistic activity.
A copy of the Statement for Outside Evaluators shall be given to the department, program, or ad hoc committee chair, as well as to FASC, the dean of the faculty, and the president.
