||Performance Review for Non-Tenured, Tenure Track Faculty Members|
This is to remind you of the Performance Review policy and procedures for non-tenured faculty on the tenure track. You should refer to the FP103a Faculty Performance Review Policy (1997) in your Guidebook that describes the process in detail, since the obligations and deadlines vary depending on the year of review. However, here is a general summary of the requirements. Please note that the college dean or his/her designee is considered the primary evaluator.
Process and Timeline for Performance Review
- Each Fall Quarter, the non-tenured tenure-track faculty member
will develop or formalize their professional development plan by mutual agreement with their primary evaluator. In some years a meeting is also required.
- In Years One, Two and Three, a non-tenured tenure-track faculty member must submit to the dean or designee a written progress report on the professional plan describing the progress made on each goal by March 1.
- By April 1 of Years One - Five, the dean will review significant information about job performance in relation to criteria listed in the policy, make a reappointment recommendation, and notify the faculty member.
- By June 30 of each year, the continuing faculty member will prepare a performance review document. The primary evaluator will review the document, meet with the faculty member, and provide a written response.
NLU's faculty evaluation system has been designed to provide both summative and formative evaluation and support faculty in achieving individual and institutional goals and professional growth. Your participation in the process is valued as we move National-Louis University forward.
If you have any questions about the deadlines or requirements of the performance review policy and process, please contact your dean or director. You may also call Vice Provost Carol Melnick (3683) or her administrative assistant Tina Turnbull (5234).
