Evaluation

Faculty Handbook 3.3 describes the standards and processes for the periodic evaluation of faculty. Periods of review and forms and requirements for the Faculty Activities Report (FAR) may differ by rank and school.

Title

College of Arts & Sciences

Interfolio will be used for annual and multi-year faculty activities reports in all schools except the School of Law beginning in Fall 2023. To assist the departments in the College of Arts and Sciences that have not yet used Faculty180 and Interfolio for annual review, the Acting Provosts have made the following accommodations:

  1. Full professors in the College may phase-in to using the system. 
    • Full professors in the College whose FAR cycles include terms before Fall 2023 will have the option to present their supporting materials in Google Drive or in Interfolio. They would begin to use Interfolio exclusively beginning in the fall term coinciding with their next FAR submission (phase-in schedule).
    • If you are a full professor and you choose Google Drive as the repository for supporting evidence for a multi-year review due between now and Fall 2027, you will upload the completed College FAR form for Full Professors only, which includes a link to your Google file folder, in the "Personal Statement" area in Faculty180, you will upload your current CV to the "CV Uploads" section in Faculty180, and then you will submit your case to your chair and dean from your Interfolio dashboard by the College deadline. The FAR workflow for the department and dean will be done in Interfolio.
  2. The Provost's Office will provide financial support for student wages to the seven departments with the largest number of faculty compiling multi-year FARs. The departments can hire students to help with data entry before the fall 2023 FAR deadline (up to 25 student hours at $17.20 per hour, per department). The seven departments are:
    • Biology
    • Chemistry & Biochemistry
    • Mathematics & Computer Science
    • Modern Languages & Literatures
    • Philosophy
    • Political Science
    • Theatre & Dance

Pandora del Carmen, Manager for Faculty Affairs, will train the department-based student assistants. The Provost’s Office will also continue to support three of our own students to assist other faculty.

Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET)

SET Reports are emailed to faculty soon after each term concludes. We recommend that you upload your SET reports to the related course sections in Faculty180 when you receive them each term. If you lose the emailed reports, you can download your reports from evaluations.scu.edu, but the online version will not have any narrative comments the students might have added.
