Recognizing the seriousness of the Covid-19 epidemic and the many resulting disruptions of student development, professional development, and community development activities, the College recognizes that faculty productivity in all three of these evaluation areas are affected. All regularly scheduled faculty evaluations will occur as planned with the following adjustments:
- Student evaluations of courses that met during the spring semester 2019-2020 academic year do not have to be included in the faculty evaluation materials unless the faculty wishes to do so. Student evaluations will be conducted during the continuing Covid-19 disruption and those evaluations will be included in faculty evaluation materials. However, consideration of submitted student evaluations will be done in a supportive, flexible way that honors the difficulties of teaching in new ways.
Professional and Community Development
- Expectations for faculty scholarship and involvement in community projects will be adjusted to honor the difficulties in completing projects when access to data collection, professional travel, and research assistance has been severely curtailed. Expectations for faculty scholarship and involvement in community projects will be adjusted to honor the increased focus on student development activities. The usual and expected focus on formative evaluation will continue as will the faculty member's opportunity to discuss the effect of this pandemic via the self-evaluation letter.
