Curriculum Vitae (CV) is Latin for “course of life”. It provides a summary of a faculty member’s experience, academic background including teaching experience, degrees, research, awards, publications, presentations, and other achievements, skills and credentials.
It is a summary of information about a faculty that is typically publicly visible.
Having a common format for CV’s allows those at the university to review in a more efficient and consistent way.
It ensures that common information is included and facilitates review and interpretation.
Faculty are encouraged to maintain a current Yale CV. In addition to making it available as needed, periodically updating it can ensure that information is captured and allow faculty and mentors to track progress.
