College Dean Evaluation Survey Process
For the policy governing this process and for its timeline, see Evaluative Review of Academic
Administrators by Faculty and Other Personnel. The
process is as follows:
The Office of the Provost announces the evaluation and makes
available a copy of the generic college dean survey
instrument on this web site: see College Dean Evaluation Form
Sample (PDF file) (announcement date: September 15).
Deans' offices coordinate collection of college-specific items (updated
every four years) and ensure that the following is sent to the Office of the
Provost (submission due date: September 30):
The number of evaluation instruments needed for the college (Personnel invited to participate
include department chairs, associate deans, full-time faculty, and
non-faculty/non-secretarial personnel [e.g., directors] who report directly to the dean.)
College-specific items (These are
updated every four years. A college that submitted
college-specific items for the survey in 2005, for
example, would not revise them until 2009.)
The Office of the Provost customizes evaluation instruments for
each college, prints the number of survey instruments
requested, and sends evaluation instruments to deans'
offices, who distribute the instruments to the departments
(forms available date: October 15).
Evaluators return the completed evaluation instruments directly
to the Office of the Provost (submission due date: November 15).
The Office of the Provost tabulates responses to the survey and
provides a summary of responses to the dean
evaluated and to the provost (dissemination
deadline: January 15). A copy of the summary of responses is
maintained in the Office of the Provost. Completed survey
instruments are retained for one year and then destroyed.
