The College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance College Schools of Business.
The University uses a software package called Digital Measures to collect and format the information required for academic faculty merit applications. It is mandatory for all faculty to use this package.
Contact Christina Hilfer if you have questions about the Digital Measures system.
Yes, you will print out a copy of your Merit Application out of the Digital Measures System and attach it to any physical supporting documentation you would normally have provided.
NO, the Digital Measures System is not setup to collect the required information from Administrative Faculty. You will submit the same paper merit application that you have done in the past.
NO, the Digital Measures System is setup to be able to collect all pertinent information and be a good repository of information for reporting and analysis. You do not have to fill out everything in the system, just the information that you would normally submit with your Merit Evaluation. An example would be: When inputting a publication it asks for Page Numbers, ISBN, URL as well as other information. These are optional fields that you can fill in if you want, but is not required. To reiterate, if you would include the Volume # in your merit evaluation under the old system, you have to include it in Digital Measures, if you would not include the Volume # in your merit evaluation under the old system, it is not a required field.
Sufficiency is to differentiate between full time and part time faculty. In the Sufficiency box, it provides two options: Participating and Supporting. Participating is used if the person is a full-time faculty and supporting is used if the person is a part-time instructor (LOA).
It is at 100% for a full-time faculty if the combined percentage of time spent by the person on teaching, research and service is all related to the College. It is less than 100% if the faculty has a joint appointment between various colleges. We don't have joint appointments for the regular (full-time) college faculty.
It is the percentage out of 100% to determine if a faculty's employment with a unit is full time or not. It is at 100% if a faculty's appointment with a unit is full-time. For all College participating faculty, the full-time equivalency (FTE) is at 100%.
The Role Statement prints out at the end of the "Evaluation Form." Print out your evaluation form and then scroll down to the bottom of the document. You should see a page titled "Role Statement."
There is a section called "Directed Student Learning". You are able to define an activity that accounts for the Honors Thesis as well as assign that to a specific student.
There is a section called "Directed Student Learning". You are able to define an activity that accounts for "Supervised Clinical, Practicum, or Internship" as well as assign the activity to a specific student.
You will input those courses into the section "Other Instruction Taught".
No, right now you only need to fill out information for the 2006 year. The other courses are in there for reporting purposes. For our AACSB accreditation, we need to have all courses back to 2003 to build the necessary reports.
You will automatically be included as the editor of your own work, but if you have others edit your work, you may add them too.
It is not required; you may if you would like to include an Abstract/Synopsis. You will want to fill out anything that you would like the Personnel Committee’s to be able to assess your performance on. If you do not feel this is important to your merit, you do not have to include the information.
When entering a publication and you choose the author of the publication if you choose it from the drop down list instead of typing it in, it will associate that publication with the person that you added as an author. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you type in all of the authors names. If you choose them from the list you could add items to a faculty members merit application that they do not want and potentially affect their merit.
Often, chief executives are said to serve as ex officio members of their board, meaning that they attend board meetings "by reason of their office," rather than through elections. Other ex officio members could be government officials who are required to represent the government as part of a major grant provision. These delegates are appointed because of the position they hold and not because they have expressed particular interest in the organization.
