Faculty Evaluation


  • Post Tenure ReviewPost-tenure review supplements annual evaluations by providing a long-term peer assessment of a faculty member’s past accomplishments and future directions.
  • Annual EvaluationEach faculty member shall be evaluated annually using criteria and methods appropriate to that unit for teaching, scholarship, and service. Specific criteria and procedures are identified in each department's faculty evaluation plan.
  • Progress Toward Tenure ReviewThe progress toward tenure review is a formal review conducted approximately midway through the probationary period for tenure-track faculty. The purpose of the review is to give faculty members a meaningful appraisal of their progress to date toward earning tenure, and to orient the tenure-track faculty member to elements of the formal tenure review process.
  • Promotion & TenureGuidelines for the promotion and/or tenure process are found in department and school faculty evaluation plans and the Faculty Senate Rules and Regulations, Article VI.
