Curriculum Vitae

Curriculum Vitae (CV)

A vitae sometimes referred to as a CV (curriculum vita) is commonly requested for academic and administrative positions in higher education. A vitae is most often used by job seekers looking for teaching positions in a college or university setting. A résumé and CV are not the same, the vitae is an elaborate presentation of a résumé. The contents of a vita include factors that are more important to educational institutions. A vitae may contain the following headings:

  • Educational Background
  • Relevant Work Experience
  • Listing of
  • Publications or Creations

  • Papers Presented at Conferences
  • Professional Association and Service
  • Special Awards or Honors, and
  • Recent and Current Research

More information on vitaes can be found in the UCS resource room.
