Syllabi & CVs

Curriculum Vitae

As part of the mandate for House Bill #2504(2), all faculty are required to post curriculum vitae on the web. This CV, which will appear on a public search engine accessible through the University's home page, will be open to the public and can be as comprehensive as the faculty member deems appropriate. Send updated CVs to the Department's web content coordinator (natalie.sharpe@austin.utexas.edu) for web publication. CVs must be uploaded to the campus-wide database by the seventh class day. 

You may access public CVs following these steps: 

  1. Go to Go to https://qual.its.utexas.edu/apps/student/coursedocs/nlogon.
  2. Enter the instructor's first and last name in the fields marked "Instructor" and click "Search."
  3. Click on the instructor's name to view CV.

Although faculty are no longer required to upload CVs to the COLA English Department online web database, you may still do so following these steps:

  1. Go to http://www.utexas.edu/cola/_db/
  2. At left menu, click "Myprofile"
  3. On the “Home” tab (which opens by default), find the  “Curriculum vitae” field
  4. Click “Browse” to locate your CV on your computer's hard drive
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "UPDATE DATABASE" link.
  6. Online help is available at http://www.laits.utexas.edu/colaguides/content/faculty-sandbox.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Tim Fackler at 2-5698 or fackler@mail.utexas.edu.

Course Syllabi

On June 13, 2007 President Powers approved a section of the Educational Policy Committee Proposal to Improve Course Availability for Undergraduates (D 3835 -3837) requiring that faculty provide students a course syllabus by the first meeting day of all classes.

In addition, the state legislature (HB 2504) recently adopted new requirements concerning the need to make undergraduate course syllabi publicly available on the University’s website. Syllabi will appear on the same public search engine that hosts CVs; send syllabi to the Department's web content coordinator (natalie.sharpe@austin.utexas.edu) for web publication. Syllabi must be uploaded to the campus-wide database by the seventh class day. Additionally, all undergraduate course syllabi must be provided to the Department by the first day of class.

Public Syllabus Template (DOC)

You may access public syllabi via the following steps:

  1. Go to Go to https://qual.its.utexas.edu/apps/student/coursedocs/nlogon.
  2. Enter Course Number, Course Title, Unique Number, and/or Instructor in the specified fields and click "Search."
  3. Click "View" under the "Syllabus" column to download a syllabus.

Although faculty are no longer required to upload course syllabi to the COLA English Department online web database, you may still do so by following these steps:

  1. Go to http://www.utexas.edu/cola/_db/
  2. At left menu, click "Myprofile"
  3. At the top of the page beneath your name will be a tab labeled "Syllabi."  Click on the linked tab.
  4. Click on the "add new syllabus" link.
  5. Fill out the form.  Make sure to use the drop down menu labeled "Active" to select "yes" or your syllabi will not appear in the database.
  6. In the box labeled "Syllabus," you can either copy the entire syllabus there, or simply copy the basic course information and upload the entire file using the "Attachment" field below.  The "Syllabus" box must contain: the course number, the name of the instructor, the time and day that the class is offered, and the title of the course.
