For Tenure Track Faculty applications, applicants will need both Confidential Letters of Recommendations and Professional references. Two separate pages of the application have input for these references.

Confidential Reference Letters

  • Input First Name, Last Name, and email for the reference.
  • References will be contacted automatically and asked to upload a Confidential Reference Letter.
  • Important Note: we are not able to interface with automatic reference letter emails, such as Interfolio references.

Professional References

  • You can elect to use separate references for professional reference checks.
  • Fill out required fields for references that will be contacted later in the selection process.
