Read more about the WTFS Program on the OPID site.

Interested applicants should submit items 1-5 below as separate attachments to one email message. That email should be sent to CATL (CATL@uwgb.edu) with the subject line “WTFS Application” by Nov. 29, 2022. The reference letter can be submitted directly to the CATL email by your Department Chair or Dean, but it is also due by Nov. 29. The full list of required materials is below:

  1. Application checklist;
  2. A letter stating your interest in and qualifications for the WTFS Program (two-page maximum);
  3. A teaching & learning philosophy as it intersects with equity, diversity, and inclusion (three-page maximum);
  4. An abbreviated curriculum vitae (two-page maximum);
  5. This budget sheet estimating costs using UW System travel reimbursement rates (Note: please use this 2022-23 form but also include $320 for an in-person, not virtual, spring conference; selected applicants will have their budget signed and approved by the Provost on a 2023-24 form);
