How to Stop Fears of Reviews Gone Wrong

Discrimination, litigation, and accusations—faculty evaluations can have negative consequences when conducted incorrectly. For deans and department chairs, developing a good faculty evaluation process is crucial to the health of the department and college as a whole.

If you view faculty evaluations and tenure reviews as nothing more than an administrative duty, you could be missing a huge opportunity for positive results in your department or college.

Learning tried-and-true practices for performance reviews can do more than streamline a potentially uncomfortable situation. It can boost the performance of your entire faculty.
