What You’ll Need to Complete the PAR Request Packet

For previous (employed at UT in a faculty title within the past 3 years) or current hires, you do not need to re-send supplementary materials. Just attach a current copy of the vita.

Send up the original and one copy of the entire PAR packet. Another copy should remain in the departmental files.

NOTE: For tenure-track or tenured hires, use the Faculty Offers Database (log in required) to submit funding commitments for approval instead of attaching documentation to the PAR packet. You do still need to attach documentation of any approvals for funding commitments that come from outside the College of Liberal Arts.

Items Required for Non-Tenured Hire:

  • Electronic PAR with signature(s)
  • Vita
  • Reference Letters (minimum of three with one from an outside source)
  • Primary Language Determination Forms
  • Posting Waiver Request (PDF) in the event the position was not posted due to spousal offer, etc.
  • Applicant Pool Statistics Table
  • Job Posting(s) (copies of all postings including a print out of the posting on UT Faculty Recruitment Web)
  • Back up documentation/approval for funding commitments (if applicable). Approval in the Faculty Offers Database will suffice for documentation of CoLA Dean’s Office commitments. Backup documentation for non-CoLA commitments will often be in the form of an e-mail exchange between your chair and the other unit, college, or department.
  • Draft Offer Letter (consult the Sample Offer Letters)
