Resources for Pre-Tenure Faculty


Sample Research Statements 

The Villanova Institute for Research and Scholarship and Director of Faculty Affairs are pleased to offer a collection of tenure statements on research and scholarship for tenure track Villanova faculty wishing to familiarize themselves with the genre.

This collection serves as an educational resource for tenure track Villanova faculty members. All statements have been generously provided by tenured members of the Villanova faculty with the express aim of supporting junior colleagues.

Tenure track faculty can request access to these secure samples for their own professional development by providing the requested information and agreeing to the terms and conditions in the linked form below.
