University faculty ranks and types are defined in FSH 1565-D. All university faculty have an annual performance evaluation, FSH 3320. Annual performance evaluations are part of the packet used by review committees when considering progress towards promotion (FSH 3560) and/or tenure (FSH 3520).
Evaluation of the performance of each faculty member is, primarily, the responsibility of the faculty member and his/her unit administrator and is based on the expectations identified in the position description (FSH 3050 B) for the corresponding year. Annual evaluations are among the critical materials used by review committees when considering progress toward promotion (FSH 3560) and tenure (FSH 3520). The Annual Evaluation of Faculty Form is found at the bottom of the FSH 3320 policy page. The completed, signed Disclosure of Conflicts section must be submitted with the annual evaluation each year.
Personnel on international assignment see (FSH 3380 C).
