The Academic Senate encourages faculty evaluation to be done in a non-punitive, collegial atmosphere. Faculty evaluation is a complex process; no single source of data is adequate. The evaluation process should begin with a written self evaluation. This encourages discussion and goal setting, giving increased value to the process. The combined appraisals of students, colleagues, administrators, and faculty member's self assessment are required for reasonably reliable and valid judgments.
