Purpose and Summary

A key tenet of the University’s policies on annual reviews of faculty has been to provide units with the flexibility to address their distinctive needs and objectives without undermining the general functions of annual performance reviews. The proposed changes to UHAP Chapters 3 and 4 will more fully recognize that faculty in some departments prefer to have all faculty involved in reviews and will allow units to assign reviewers to faculty with related expertise on an individual basis if decided by the faculty of the unit. Units will still be required to have a peer review committee to advise the head or director on individual reviews that require remediation or other action.
