Letters of Recommendation

Master
Content

The nominators, with input from candidates, will submit to the administrative coordinator for the Robertson Award names of individuals whom they would like to write letters of recommendation on behalf of the candidate. The administrative coordinator will contact these individuals.

If you are requested to write a letter for a candidate you should:

Indicate your relationship to the candidate, length of association and basis upon which the recommendation is made.

Address in detail specifics of the educational criteria taking advantage of personal, first hand knowledge and experience with the candidate’s work. It is important to select those criteria that you are qualified to discuss, providing credible testimony regarding the candidate’s accomplishments.

Address the breadth and exceptional educational contributions of the candidate as perceived by yourself, learners, peers and colleagues, demonstrating that the candidate is widely held in high esteem.

It is important for your letter to discuss major examples of the candidate's contributions; however, please refrain from attaching additional supporting material, such as reprints or evaluations.

While the committee will again review candidates’ curriculum vitae and Narrative Summary of Educator’s Contributions it is anticipated that the letters of recommendation will have a great influence on the selection of award recipients.

The letter must be submitted to the administrative coordinator by the deadline for letters of recommendation in order to be considered. See Important Dates.

The Letters of Recommendation addressed to the Selection Committee may be scanned and emailed as attachments to:
