The first step in this annual evaluation process is for faculty to complete rubrics to evaluate their deans. These rubrics consist of a series of open and closed ended questions about a given dean's performance during that academic year.
The second step is for the executive committee of each school and college to tabulate the results of the evaluation of its respective dean and submit a summary report and all completed evaluation rubrics to the provost. The rubric responses and comments will not be edited.
The third step is for the provost to review the results of the evaluation and the executive committee reports, and then meet with each of the deans individually to discuss this feedback.
Finally, the provost will communicate the results of the evaluation to the full-time faculty within the school or college within 60 days of the completion of the evaluation. Per the Faculty Handbook, the results shall be used by the provost to improve the effectiveness of deans and to make recommendations to the president regarding their continuation or replacement.
