Annual Evaluation Process

Step by Step Faculty Evaluation Process

For detailed instructions on how to complete the self-evaluation, you can view the Faculty Performance Evaluation Guide.  You can also review the Faculty Performance Evaluation Discussion Guide to view tips and best practices to ensure a productive meeting. **Please note that this process only applies to university-employed faculty.**

  1. All eligible university employed faculty will complete a self-evaluation.  The evaluation can be submitted using the Self-Evaluation Form Template and Education Dashboard. 
  2. For junior faculty, the self-evaluation forms will then be reviewed by the primary appointment Department/Division or Program Performance Review Committee, using well-defined anchors.  The Committee will provide a summary of the faculty member’s performance to the Chair/Division or Program Director.
  3. The Chair/Division or Program Director will then meet with the faculty member to review their performance and set goals/expectations for the next year.
  4. As in previous years, review of the performance and setting goals/expectations of tenured faculty members will be conducted by the Department Chair.


The faculty are evaluated based on their work during the most recent calendar year (January 1 – December 31, 2021).  Deadlines for the annual evaluation process are set by the Senior Associate Dean for Faculty & Academic Affairs.  Below is the timeline of events:
