Review of Academic Administrators
For the purpose of this policy, academic administrators shall be Vice Presidents, Deans
and Department Heads.
Immediate faculty supervisors (usually Department Heads and Associate Deans) will be
reviewed annually. Other academic administrators shall be reviewed at least once every
three years. The method and manner of review shall be determined by the immediate
supervisor of the person reviewed. The use of 360 reviews for Vice Presidents and Deans
is encouraged.
Faculty shall have the opportunity to regularly provide input to the review of academic
administrators. The supervisors conducting the review of the administrator shall formally
solicit faculty input concerning the performance of the administrator.
Formal mechanisms shall be implemented which guarantee the confidentiality of faculty
input. Faculty input shall be solicited through Faculty Council for Vice Presidents,
throughout the college for Deans, and within the Department for Department Heads.
Faculty Council shall draft a set of model questions for each level of review which will
be included in the solicitation of faculty evaluation. Faculty eligible to participate in the
review will submit their responses to the questions to Faculty Council, which will
confirm eligibility to evaluate, assign a number to the evaluation, and forward a copy to
the supervisor conducting the performance review.
The written review provided to the academic administrator shall specifically address the
evaluations received from faculty, and issues raised shall be specifically addressed with
the administrator under review.
The performance reviews of academic administrators are matters of individual privacy
and will not be disclosed by the evaluator.
The solicitation of faculty input shall be completed by April 15. Should April 15 fall on a
weekend, it will be due the following week day.
