PERIODIC REVIEW OF ADMINISTRATIVE PERFORMANCE

The purpose of the periodic review of administrative performance is to assist people who hold administrative positions to maintain or improve their effectiveness.

This policy and procedure applies only to Management Personnel Plan (MPP) employees at grade level III and IV. The positions to be reviewed include the following:

  • administrators who report to the President;
  • administrators who work in the Division of Academic Affairs; and
  • certain administrators designated by the Administrative Review Committee who work in the Division of Student Affairs whose work may be academic in nature, as specified in the corresponding procedure.

Administrative performance shall be evaluated on a four-year cycle, to the extent possible. Any request to waive or postpone the review must be approved by the President.

A standing committee shall be established, consisting of three designees of the President, two of which shall be MPPs, three faculty members chosen by the Faculty Senate, a staff member chosen by the University Staff Assembly, and one student chosen by the Associated Students, if available. Members, except for the student, will serve staggered three-year terms, designated by lot. The President's designees shall not serve during the year in which their performance is to be reviewed.

The committee’s duties are to implement this policy by following the established guidelines and procedures to prepare a schedule of reviews; secure review evaluations from all relevant constituencies; prepare reviews; prepare a summary report of the results of the review process; and recommend any changes to review process to the appropriate administrator.
