Getting Everyone on the Bus, and in the Right Seat


The research analyzes measures of faculty performance (peer review, level of engagement, student satisfaction, and course completion rates) and faculty perceptions of professional development to determine appropriate course approvals, alignment to teaching assignments, and professional development needs. The goal is to ensure higher levels of course completion by students and better retention to graduation. As the University strives to ensure transparency in the evaluation of faculty performance, the same evaluation measures can and should be used to ensure a high-quality experience for students.
