Policy on Evaluation of Administrators
It is the belief that the purpose of the evaluation is to assist the administrator in determining his/her effectiveness. The Faculty Affairs Committee in collaboration with those whom the evaluations will include and with the assistance of the Office of Institutional Research, shall be responsible for developing instruments used for the evaluation. In addition, the Office of Institutional Research shall be responsible for distributing and collecting evaluations. The timeline for evaluations should parallel administrative evaluations of faculty. Distribution of evaluations to the administrator being evaluated should occur by mid-January with results available by February 15.
Evaluations shall occur at each administrative level as specified below:
- Department Head: Summary results from faculty members will be reported to the Department Head and to the appropriate Dean.
- Dean: Summary results from faculty members (including Department Heads) of the College will be reported to the Dean and to the Vice-President for Academic Affairs.
- Vice-President: Summary results from faculty members (including Deans and Department Heads) will be reported to the Vice-President for Academic Affairs and the President.
- President: Summary results from all evaluations will be reported to the President and to the Chancellor of the Board of Regents.
It is recommended that each administrator share evaluation results with faculty for whom the administrator is responsible.
