Faculty Evaluation Revision Updates

The Administrative Rules establishing the revised faculty evaluation process were approved by the college Academic and Student Affairs Council in April 2023 and by the Chancellor in May 2023. Below, you will find a summary of the transition plan to the revised system and short documents that summarize the changes that are coming.

First and most importantly: Faculty evaluations will continue as usual under the existing system for the academic year 2023-2024. 

The new revisions (Administrative Rule 4.1201.02: Faculty Evaluation and Administrative Rule Guideline/Procedure 4.1201.02.1: Faculty Evaluation (G/P)) will go into effect in Fall 2024: faculty will begin submitting evaluation materials under the revised system for academic year 2024-2025 and the first evaluations under this system will take place in Fall 2025
