2:30 - 3:30 p.m., Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center
Presented by Dr. Luke Keller, Associate Professor, Department of Physics

Faculty and staff are often asked to write letters recommending students for scholarships, fellowships, internships, graduate school, medical school, and jobs.  As with resumes, an effective letter of recommendation can make a significant positive impact on the student's success, while a mediocre letter—even a positive one—can trigger the circular file.  We will discuss strategies for crafting effective letters that stand out.

This short workshop is designed for early career faculty and staff, but we welcome more experienced letter writers to the discussion.
