An intensive performance review during the third year of a tenure-track position is common practice at many institutions. The third-year review can be a useful opportunity for external feedback, as well as internal reflection, on a junior faculty member’s progress toward tenure. However, preparing for a third-year review can be intimidating or frustrating for junior faculty, especially if an institution’s guidelines for preparing review materials are very open-ended. This paper supplies strategies for preparing core and supplementary materials for an intensive third- year review. Suggestions are given for personally-reflective statements and corresponding types of documentation that can be assembled into a coherent and concise package. The ideas summarized in this paper can be selectively used to prepare a third-year review package which best reflects a junior faculty member’s current and planned professional development.
