All university faculty holding rank have a position description (PD) as outlined in FSH 3050 "Position Descriptions". It establishes each faculty member’s duties in the four major responsibility areas of Teaching and Advising, Scholarship and Creative Activities, Outreach and Extension and University Service and Leadership identified in (FSH 1565 C).
The position description serves as reference in the annual performance evaluations of faculty and in the consideration of faculty members for promotion (FSH 3560) and tenure (FSH 3520).
This process was significantly revised in spring 2018. Changes include moving to an online system, a new PD format, new PD content and the elimination of an annual process.
