1.09-7 External Letters of Recommendation

Obtain at least three letters of recommendation from external authorities who can provide a critical, detailed evaluation of the candidate’s work as related to the faculty appointment. Internal letters of recommendation will be allowed for appointment of part-time and temporary instructors when their primary teaching experience has been at the University of Georgia. Any request for exception to this requirement must be noted in the Dean/VP cover letter, along with justification for the exception request, and requires Provost’s approval. These letters should be signed and sent by the author to the hiring unit. If submitted electronically without an original signature, the hiring unit must verify that the originating email address belongs to the author of the letter.
