Off-site Committee Comments


The University of Alabama Birmingham evaluates the effectiveness of each faculty member annually. The policy, criteria, and procedures are established in the University Faculty Handbook and Policies and can also be found in the University Policies and Procedures Library. Annual evaluations are conducted by department chairs and vary according to the particular demands of individual departments, relative to teaching, research, and service. Evidence of adherence to this policy was not provided. However, the report stated that examples of completed evaluations will be available during the on-site review.
