Faculty Rights Tip of the Week: Get acquainted with your evaluation criteria & procedures

With the start of a new academic year, this Faculty Rights Tip should be of interest to all faculty including coaches, counselors, librarians, lecturers, probationary, and tenured faculty.

15.3  Evaluation criteria and procedures shall be made available to the faculty unit employee no later than 14 days after the first day of instruction of the academic term. Evaluation criteria and procedures shall be made available to the evaluation committee and the academic administrators prior to the commencement of the evaluation process. Once the evaluation process has begun, there shall be no changes in criteria and procedures used to evaluate the faculty unit employee during the evaluation process.

We urge all new faculty members to contact department chairs or immediate supervisors to learn about relevant evaluation criteria and procedures at the campus, college, and department levels.
