  • finalization of faculty appointments
  • orientation and onboarding of new faculty
  • the appointment, promotion, and tenure (APT) process
  • faculty development
  • collaboration with the schools and colleges in reviews required for the development and revision of bylaws.

Annual faculty evaluations (FPES) are conducted in late spring of every year. All faculty, full- and part-time, are required to complete the annual evaluation this year in the Faculty Success online platform. Your faculty self-evaluation (review materials) must be submitted via the Faculty Success-Faculty Performance Evaluation System (FS-FPES) to your department chair or to your dean (in schools without departments). Faculty can regularly input their activities in Faculty Success throughout the year. This will facilitate preparation for self-evaluation during the FPES.  Learn more about FPES here.
