Consistent with ACD506-10, annual performance evaluations serve three distinct purposes; comply with Board of Regents requirements to encourage faculty to establish goals for continued academic progress; guide decisions about salary adjustments; and institute the first step in the post-tenure review process for tenured faculty. An annual performance evaluation is required of all 50 percent FTE and greater faculty, regardless of appointment category; faculty on less than a 50 percent FTE appointment may be evaluated annually. The review should cover the previous 36 months with substantial emphasis on the current year. Fixed-term faculty should consult with their unit regarding specific criteria considered during the annual review process.
The college requires that units complete the annual evaluation process and provide each fixed-term faculty member with a copy of his or her evaluation. Units should send the college copies of performance evaluations for all fixed-term faculty employed at 50 percent or more.
Fixed-term academic professionals
Consistent with ACD507-08, all academic professionals shall have annual performance evaluations. Performance evaluations should promote the effectiveness of academic professionals by articulating the actions that will enhance professional contributions, recognizing applications of relevant talents and capabilities, and identifying issues of position effectiveness that were below expectations and should be addressed during the next evaluation period. Each performance evaluation shall document that position effectiveness, professional contributions, and institutional, professional and/or community service, in accordance with the academic professional’s job description during the evaluation period, were considered. The review should cover a 36-month period (where applicable) with substantial emphasis on the current year.
