The following are suggestions of documents that could be included or adapted in a dossier to document the quality of a scholar's community-engaged work:
- Career Statement
- Curriculum Vita
- Statement of Assigned Responsibilities
- Teaching Portfolios
- Letters of Support/Appreciation from Community Members/Partners
- Peer Review Letters from Community Leaders
- Publications in Media Aimed at Community Partners
- Peer-Reviewed Publications that Report on Community-Engaged Scholarship
Depending on each institution and department' standards and guidelines for preparing promotion and tenure materials, some of these may or may not be useful to individual scholars. Community-engaged scholars are encouraged to use these ideas in the context of the requirements of the institutions in which they work.
