FWIG Call for Resumes

Are You a Woman Seeking a Teaching Position in Planning?


The Faculty Women's Interest Group (FWIG) of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP) annually prepares and posts on the ACSP website a compilation of the two-page abbreviated resumes of women seeking tenure-earning teaching positions in Planning and related programs in North America. The Resume Book is widely used by Planning Departments conducting faculty searches; many people who appeared in previous editions are convinced that it played an important role in their successful job search.

Most resumes are from those with an earned PhD in Planning or a related field who are just starting their teaching careers. Feel free to include your resume if you already have a teaching position and are considering a move OR if you're ABD and almost ready. We occasionally get resumes from those with Masters degrees and practicing planners who hope to teach. If you are not sure where to start, try here: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/641/01/

If you’d like your two-page resume to appear in the 2018 edition of the FWIG book, please send a PDF version of a two-page resume as an attachment to an email to the address below. We will NOT accept any other format. We will NOT include more than two pages.


  • No more than 2 pages;
  • At least one inch margins;
  • At least 12 point type;
  • Do NOT paginate;
  • Do NOT use footers of any kind (headers are ok, but don’t include page numbers);
  • Choose 2 (and only 2) specializations for categorization purposes;
  • Check the PDF version to ensure that the formatting is correct prior to sending it in.

Additional suggested guidelines:

  • Print your NAME in 16-18 point type at the top – not “resume” or “vitae;”
  • Consider what the two pages look like – your experience and background should be easy to see;
  • Think about what the two pages say about you – your strengths and skills should jump right out; and,
  • Check previous Resume Books on the ACSP website for guidance.

Please indicate two specializations under which you would like your resume to be categorized (listed below). Because we very occasionally add a new category you may ALSO list a category not on the list below; if we get three or more requests for the same new category we will add it.

Feel free to email for additional information. There is no charge for appearing in the publication. The publication should be on-line on the ACSP website by the last week in September. No hard copies will be published.

Please send the PDF of your two page abbreviated CV to: fwig.resume.book@gmail.com with the subject line: FWIG RESUME BOOK 2018
