4P6 Designing and Using the Personnel Evaluation System
Western has established policies guiding the employee evaluation processes (Policy
Guide, 3. I.D). The quality of faculty teaching, service, and scholarship are evaluated annually. The process begins with goal setting and concludes with a performance evaluation within the context of goals set, including self-evaluation, peer and chair evaluation, and review by appropriate deans, and the Provost/Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs (Policy
Guide, 2.VI.A&B). Quality faculty performance is recognized and rewarded through the promotion and tenure system (1P6).
Staff evaluation uses a similar process of setting goals and being evaluated within the context of the job descriptions. All exempt and non-exempt staff and administrators undergo an equivalent evaluation process (4P1-4P2).
Leadership evaluation is an element in the annual evaluation process (5R1). Chairpersons are evaluated annually. The Faculty Senate evaluated the Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs in 2004. The President undergoes an annual review by Western’s Board of Governors.
