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.**
- All eligible university employed faculty will complete a self-evaluation. The evaluation can be submitted using the Self-Evaluation Form Template and Education Dashboard.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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:
