Annual Faculty Evaluation for 2020

This year is one in which most aspects of our lives have been substantially affected. Our ability to meet our goals regarding teaching, research/creative activity, and service are no different. Many occurrences in 2020, including the global pandemic, may have impacted faculty achievement. These effects are likely to vary across individuals, with many faculty experiencing particular effects. As a result, the process of faculty annual evaluation will be altered for 2020, acknowledging these challenges, and placing a greater focus on mentoring and development.

Progress Toward Tenure

During the probationary period, a faculty member will be provided by the chair/director of the academic unit with both an annual, written evaluation of performance during the past calendar year and a progress towards tenure letter that reviews the faculty member’s entire probationary period at the University.

Such annual evaluation from the most recent spring evaluation cycle shall be provided prior to the applicable notification deadline for reappointment, with a copy sent to the dean.

Reappointment of Ranked Renewable Term Faculty

Annual faculty evaluations are conducted each calendar year and shared with the faculty member. During the final year of the multi-year term a faculty member will receive a comprehensive and thorough evaluation of their performance for the entire multi-year term. The unit and college specify the procedures for conducting the comprehensive evaluation.
