Dr. Paul Killpatrick: "Dr. Arreola has set the gold standard
for developing quality faculty evaluation instruments. Everything is grounded in research.
I had the pleasure of working with him at my previous institution."
Dr. Mike McFarlane: "As the Vice President for Academic
Affairs at Great Basin College, I strongly support the efforts of the GBC faculty to revise
the faculty annual evaluation system. We must work together to assure that we are maintaining
effective practices for the institution in every function.
As Great Basin College grows, it is becoming more complex, 1- in its mission, 2- how its programs are
delivered, and 3- in the nature of its service area. The College must evolve to cope and
thrive with its new complexities. We as a College must together adopt those new practices
that are required to keep pace with changing times and the greater demands on higher education
and its professionals. Because of the increase of complexity in teaching through distance
delivery options, assessment requirements, and programmatic factors, more than 50% of
the GBC faculty has reassigned duties outside of the traditional classroom. It is now
the time to create a new comprehensive evaluation system for faculty that not only better
measures the functions associated with traditional teaching roles, but also incorporates
the broad array of functions that faculty must undertake outside of traditional teaching
Lynn Mahlberg: "I wholeheartedly support the proposed process
for evaluation of academic and administrative faculty."
