Chair Evaluations and Faculty Evaluations
The task force’s first year of work resulted in the removal of the numbering system used on the evaluation instrument effective spring 2014. Additionally, two subcommittees were formed. One subcommittee was charged with developing a Faculty/Staff evaluation instrument and the second subcommittee was assigned the development of a Chair evaluation procedure. Both committees gave presentations of their work to the ad hoc committee as a whole on 10/15/2014.
An ad hoc committee of the Faculty Association was formed in the Spring of 2013 and has produced a chair evaluation form and procedure. The process of chair evaluations is a high priority initiative of the Faculty Association in 2013-2014 and progress on that will be documented on this page as it occurs.
Initial Post (9/12/2013)
John Upton and Shane Oakley are working on forming a task force that will work on overhauling the current employee evaluation process as it applies to faculty and staff. The task force will also pursue the development of a system for faculty to evaluate their chairs, so these two initiatives have been combined into one. Any faculty interested in being a part of this task please contact Shane Oakley (firstname.lastname@example.org). There are a limited number of seats on the task force and equal representation from CAS faculty and Votech faculty is desired. The task force will present an opportunity to have a role in creating a new and improved system of evaluation for faculty and staff as well as mechanism for bottom-up evaluation of chairs by their respective faculty members.
