(HISTORY: An earlier version of this statement of policy and procedures pertaining to administrative evaluation was reviewed and considered by the Faculty Senate on November 6, 1990. After approval of an amendment from the floor, the Faculty Senate unanimously approved a version that was transmitted to Chancellor Kerrigan on November 13, 1990. After review of the senate-approved document and conferral with Dr. Zillur R. Khan, President of the Faculty Senate, Chancellor Kerrigan approved this slightly revised version on November 15, 1990. [The Chancellor's approved version made several editorial changes that made the procedures for Deans and Assistant/Associate Deans parallel to the procedures that apply to the Provost and Vice Chancellor.] This statement of policy and procedures is effective as of November 15, 1990.)
