11.1 Excellence in Teaching Committee

The Excellence in Teaching Committee sponsors course evaluations, peer observations, and self-evaluations for the purpose of improving teaching skills. All faculty are expected to have one course per semester evaluated by students. All tenured faculty are expected to have a peer observation once a year; all non-tenured faculty, once per semester. These evaluation forms are returned directly to faculty and may be forwarded to the Office of the Provost/Dean of Faculty for inclusion in his/her personnel folder, if the faculty member so chooses. Faculty are expected to cooperate with the Committee by prompt response to requests for appointments.
