The words “Curriculum vitae” immediately underneath or above, centered, in 12 point font.
Institutional and home addresses, tel, email, parallel on the right and left side of page respectively,
III. Content Areas
Education. List by degree, Ph.D., M.A., B.A. in descending order. Give department, institution, and year of completion. Include Dissertation Title.
Awards and Honors. Give name of award and institutional location. Year at left.
Grants and Fellowships (if you are in a field where these differ categorically from Awards and Honors). Give funder, institutional location in which received/utilized, year span. Year at left.
Invited Talks. These are talks to which you have been invited at OTHER campuses, not your own. Give title, institutional location, and date. Year only (not month or day) at left. Month and day of talk go into entries.
Conference Activity/Participation. Subheadings: Panels Organized, Papers Presented, Discussant. These entries will include: Name of paper, name of conference, date. Year on left as noted above. Month and date-range of conference in the entry itself (ie, March 22-25).
Campus or Departmental Talks.
Teaching Experience. Subdivide either by area/field of teaching or by institutional location, or by Graduate/Undergraduate, or some combination of these as appropriate to your particular case.
Make subheadings for each institution. Then list the courses vertically down the left (ie, do NOT use the year-to-left rule that applies everywhere else). To the right of each course, in parentheses, give the terms and years taught. This allows you to show the number of times you’ve taught a course without listing it over and over.
Teaching Areas/Courses Prepared To Teach. [Optional]. You can give a brief list of course titles (titles only!) that represent your areas of teaching preparation. No more than 10 courses should be listed here.
18. Languages. All languages to be listed vertically, with proficiency in reading, speaking, and writing clearly demarcated using terms such as: native, fluent, excellent, conversational, good, can read with dictionary, etc.
References. List references vertically. Give name and full title. Give full snail mail contact information along with tel and email.
