Rather than summarizing your accomplishments, your personal statement should reflect your personal investment and views pertinent to the award category. Criteria that might be best addressed in a personal statement are goals and personal preparation (including on-going faculty development, and reflection about improvements). The personal statement should not exceed two pages but may refer to other narratives or appendices that further describe or document different aspects or areas of your educational efforts. To help you get started thinking about how you might write a personal statement, refer to the Personal Statement Reflection Activity below. You may also refer to the examples in each award category.
