Engagement and your career

Shows some woods with the label engagement and your career

Introduction

Warwick Institute of Engagement (WIE) believe that colleagues should be recognised for their engagement, impact and outreach work. There are many reasons why we engage and one of those is the contribution it can have towards your career.

Engagement, Impact and Outreach have been recognised in Warwick's Academic Promotions criteria since the 2018/19 promotions cycle. The Promotion and Impact, Outreach and Engagement Review Learning Circle was commissioned by the Provost to revisit and update examples of evidence for Impact, Outreach and Engagement (I, O, E) cited in the University’s Promotions Criteria. This wider set of examples has now been incorporated since the 21-22 Academic Promotions CriteriaLink opens in a new window.

We've worked with the Learning Circle and other colleagues to put together the following resources to help you in developing your promotions case.
