Because of the University open file policy, all such submissions will be available to the individual faculty member. Thus, you are asked either to indicate your awareness of this policy in your letter, or to complete an open file policy form which can be obtained in the Office of Academic Affairs, 377 Julian Science and Mathematics Center or on the Faculty Personnel Policy and Review website.

The most helpful letters are those confined to personal experience of the letter writer. Since the criteria for review cover a broad set of categories spread over teaching, scholarly and artistic work, and service, your letter should only speak to your first-hand experience with the faculty member under review. It is neither helpful nor appropriate for a letter writer to make a recommendation for the outcome (e.g. granting tenure or promotion) since that implies a judgment based on incomplete information. A formal recommendation will be made by the review committees upon examination of all lines of evidence contained in the decision file.
