Resource for Faculty Seeking New Positions
Nathalie Singh-Corcoran, Coordinator of the Eberly Writing Studio, has generously offered to proofread, edit, and/or provide feedback on cover letters and CVs of faculty searching for new positions. You can reach Nathalie at nathalie.singh-corcoran@mail.wvu.edu
Regarding Emeritus Status for Retirees during Transformation
Emeritus Status: The retirement clause of BOG Rule 4.2 (Section 10.2) on emeritus status is being waived this year. We encourage all those eligible to apply.
Reduction in Force Information
The Provost’s Office confirmed on 10/20/23 that non-returning faculty generally are not required to go through the annual review process, including submitting materials in Digital Measures/Watermark. We do remind faculty that Digital Measures/Watermark will transfer to many other institutions, so some non-returning faculty may still elect to enter information into that system.
