Student Evaluation of Teaching

Affirming that the instruction of students is the first purpose of the University and the prime responsibility of every faculty member, the University requires that all faculty members provide students in their classes with the opportunity to formally evaluate instruction in accordance with established procedures. Such evaluation provides ben­eficial information to the faculty member for the continued improvement of instruction and provides one measure of a faculty member’s performance for decisions concerning promotion, tenure and merit salary increases. The evalu­ation of all part-time and full-time faculty will occur each semester except in cases when the number of students enrolled in a course would compromise the anonymity of a student.
