Dear Department Chairs:
On behalf of all of our Evaluation committee members, we would like to thank all of you
for your initiative and leadership in completing the required information for Forms 1A
and 1B. Each department has completed their Activities List and many have identified which
faculty roles they believe should be evaluated. The roles that seem to be evolving in
the GBC Evaluation process are as follows: Teaching, Creative Scholarly Activities, Institutional
Service, Program Management, and Community Service.
We have placed activities from Form 1A into Form 1B. Before we move to Step 2, department
members must solidify the Form 1B list. In order to complete this task, we will be e-mailing
Form 1B to all departments for approval and/or revision.
Our committee is ready to undertake Step 2, Setting Faculty Role Model Parameter Values.
The objective of Step 2 is to begin the process of defining the value structure on which
the evaluation system will ultimately be based. Prior to meeting with your department,
we are asking that each Department Head review the process for Step 2.
Step 2 – Form 2A: Individual Faculty - List the above roles on Form 2A that were identified
by your department. Indicate the minimum and maximum percentage values or weights you
believe should be placed on each role.
Step 2 – Form 2B: Discuss the outcome of
the individual minimum and maximum percentage values with all department members. As a
department, work together to reach a consensus among faculty on the departmental minimum
and maximum weight for each role. In completing this form, make sure the values entered
balance -- that is, each maximum value, when added to the remaining minimum values should
total 100% or less.

We are asking that the information for Step 2 be e-mailed to Lynette Macfarlan by November
30th. If you need assistance, your designated Evaluation Committee member will assist
you with the completion of Step 2.
If you have any questions, please call or e-mail Lynette Macfarlan or Linda Uhlenkott.
Your effort, time and patience, as we proceed through each step in the process, are greatly
Evaluation Committee Members
