8.12.1 Performance Evaluations for Academic Deans and Vice Presidents


This policy provides guidelines for annual evaluations of Vice Presidents and for Academic Deans.  All Academic Deans and Vice Presidents are subject to an annual performance evaluation during which their performance will be assessed in the following areas of responsibility:

  • Ability and effectiveness in administering and providing leadership to his/her respective College or Division;
  • Effectiveness in meeting approved division and personal goals and objectives for the review period;
  • Effectiveness and contributions towards achieving institutional goals (from the President’s Annual Retreat and from the Strategic Plan) for the review period;
  • Quality of advice and counsel given his/her supervisor and/or the Senior Executive Council;
  • Effectiveness, especially with other Vice Presidents, Deans, and members of the Senior Executive Council;
  • Other situational or time-specific factors.

Vice Presidents and Academic Deans may be reappointed annually.  An Academic Dean or Vice President may serve an unlimited number of years as long as the individual’s performance is demonstrably satisfactory.


Academic Deans and Vice Presidents will meet with their supervisor in October for their annual performance review.  The status of each of the previous year’s goals will be reviewed and discussed. 

Goals for the coming year will be identified.  Individual goals will be discussed for clarification and common understanding.  Timelines will be determined for each goal.

The performance of each Academic Dean and Vice President will be discussed.  Performance goals will be identified as needed.
