2,716: Evaluation of Academic Faculty

Last Revised: May 1998

Annual evaluation decisions are based on the success with which the faculty member has reached established goals. Specific evaluations of each faculty member, based on a workload plan or role statement for the year, are of major importance in evaluating performance. Activities selected in formulating the annual plan must be chosen wisely as this obviously affects the evaluation. Evaluations will need to consider both the quality of the service planned for the year and the success with which it is provided. Evaluations for academic faculty normally give primary consideration to accomplishments in teaching, scholarship and service. Progress on long-range projects is considered as well as evidence of completed work.

Specific procedures for faculty evaluations are provided in department and/or unit bylaws.
