CAS: Application Letter of Support
Instructions to Referees
Miller Visitors (Professors, Scholars and Creative Artists) are women and men of outstanding achievement in academic or public life. These visitors might teach a special course, engage in research activities, interact informally with students and faculty, or take part in interdisciplinary seminars.
Visitors are invited to participate in activities of the Center for Advanced Study community and may be invited to give a presentation in the CAS/MillerComm series of public events. They should not be assigned to teach regularly scheduled courses, fill in for faculty members on leave, or carry out regular faculty duties.
Unit Head's Letter is required indicating the financial commitment of your unit and how this visit will impact on the unit as a whole.
Referee Selection Criteria
In your letter of support, address the nominee's excellence as a scholar, artist, or professional; potential contribution to the life of the campus; and anticipated level of interaction with faculty and students in the sponsoring unit(s) and in cross-disciplinary venues. Proposals that cross disciplinary lines are strongly encouraged.
