For the 2020 Faculty Evaluations, faculty may include a one-page, optional COVID impact statement that details the ways in which the pandemic has affected their teaching, research or creative activity, outreach and engagement, and service and leadership. Instructions and more details are provided on the Faculty Evaluation Guideline 2020.
University faculty ranks and types are defined in FSH 1565. 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).
Annual evaluation of the performance of each member of the faculty is primarily the responsibility of the faculty member and unit administrator. The provost is responsible for preparing the guidelines for faculty performance evaluations each year, including supplemental instructions and the schedule for completion. The Annual Evaluation of Faculty Form is found at the bottom of the FSH 3320 policy page.
Faculty with administrative appointments fill out the same form. The evaluator of the administrator shall ensure that faculty and staff interacting with the administrator have the opportunity to provide confidential feedback regarding the administrator’s performance to the evaluator. All feedback will be collected by Institutional Effectiveness and Accreditation (IEA) to maintain confidentiality. Identifying information will be redacted from the feedback by IEA before the feedback is provided to the evaluator.
Direct reports to the Provost and Executive Vice President will be provided with an evaluation form from the Provost’s office.
Personnel on international assignment see (FSH 3380).
Administrator Review Initiated by Faculty (FSH 3320): An administrator review may be initiated through a petition signed by at least 50% of the faculty members in the unit and delivered to the provost. The appointment and responsibilities of Administrators are defined in (FSH 1420).
