On October 18, 2012, by a vote of the Faculty Senate, the Administrator Evaluation Process as outlined in sections 5.76.10-11 and 10.90.10-15 of the UNIVERSITY MANUAL was suspended for two academic years, 2012-13 and 2013-14. Legislation was passed to conduct a pilot process during these two years (Bill #12-13--5).
The former process focused on soliciting letters of evaluation from faculty for the administrator under review. Often a limited number of letters were received making the report-writing task difficult and leaving the usefulness open to question.
The new pilot process uses a confidential electronic survey of faculty. Confidentiality is protected by the survey process; results are directed to the Faculty Senate Office though a dedicated Survey Monkey account. In 2012-13, participation results from faculty at the college level ranged from 65% to 90% vs. single digits for the previous letter-based evaluation system.
Use of the electronic survey produces survey data that becomes the focus of report writing. The report better represents the opinions and assessments of the faculty in a fair and valid manner.
The following administrators are under review in AY 2013-14:
Garrett Bozylinsky, Chief Information Officer
Winifred Brownell, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences
Donald DeHayes, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
Dean Libutti, Vice Provost for Enrollment Management
Jayne Richmond, Dean, University College and Special Academic Programs
Nasser Zawia, Dean, Graduate School
