Review of Liberal Arts Department Heads
University Policy VI.F.3 addresses the requirement of a review of administrative offices by their supervisors “on a periodic basis.” No more than five years can lapse between reviews.

In addition to the five-year review, the dean evaluates each department head’s performance on an annual basis in the spring semester. The head’s performance will be evaluated in the following areas: administration (including knowledge and implementation of University and college policies and procedures; and leadership of new initiatives), faculty and staff development (including recruitment and promotion), implementation of University, college, and departmental strategic plan goals (including enhancing faculty, student, and staff diversity; departmental engagement activities; interdisciplinary research and teaching; international activities; and fundraising).
