About Reviews

All faculty must be formally evaluated on their performance once every twelve months to ensure accountability to the University community and the citizens of Arizona. Each annual review shall include the past three to five calendar years of the individual faculty member's performance, with substantial emphasis on the current year for evaluation of teaching. The review time period shall be determined by the unit. The unit head's written evaluation shall be shared with the faculty member involved no later than April 15. The faculty member may add written comments to the evaluation before signing it. The signed evaluation shall become a part of the faculty member's departmental records.

The Retention Review occurs during the third year and serves as a dress rehearsal for the sixth-year, mandatory promotion and tenure or continuing status review (see promotion). Dates for these reviews are outlined in offer letters. 

Administrators receive annual reviews from their supervisors, as well as a comprehensive review every five years. The Five-Year Administrative Review is designed for stakeholders to assess the strategic goals and objectives of a department head, director, dean, vice president, or other administrators.
