Faculty Performance Evaluations are annually reviewed by the Faculty Affairs Committee, which is one of the standing committees of the University, comprising of all academic deans and elected faculty members from each College, chaired by the Dean of Faculty & Personnel Affairs. The prime responsibility of this Committee is to conduct annual review of faculty evaluations with the sole objective to develop highly professional, stable, and competent faculty. The annual faculty evaluation is a continuous process through which the professional strengths and weaknesses of faculty are assessed in order to stimulate better performance and future improvement in their professionalism. The major components involved in the evaluation process are: teaching, research & scholarship, participation in the departmental committees and other activities. Regular meetings of the Faculty Affairs Committee are held each year for approximately 5-6 months during the first semester to finalize the evaluations and submit Committee deliberations to the Chief Executive Officer of the University for approval.
