The University regularly evaluates employee performance and provides resources for the personal and professional development of faculty and staff. Faculty evaluations include input from students, departmental faculty, and the college dean. Faculty members are evaluated in three general performance categories including effective teaching and fulfillment of professional responsibilities, continuing scholarly growth, and service to the University and/or community.
Supervisors evaluate managers, administrators, and staff members annually using an appraisal document developed to appropriately measure the job performance of employees within each employee classification. The evaluation process includes a dialogue between supervisors and subordinates that provides an opportunity to discuss performance expectations and results. The management appraisal document includes a development plan designed to promote professional growth. Other types of development opportunities are available to faculty and staff. Several different sources of funding provide faculty and staff with on and off-campus professional development programs such as sabbaticals, development grants, workshops, conferences, out-service training, and technology-related training.
