		UAF GOVERNANCE COORDINATING COMMITTEE
				PROCEDURES


INTRODUCTION

	FACULTY, STAFF, AND STUDENT GOVERNANCE IS ESTABLISHED 
BY UNIVERSITY OF ALASKA BOARD OF REGENTS' POLICY.  EACH 
GOVERNANCE ORGANIZATION OPERATES INDEPENDENTLY, BUT WITH 
FORMAL INTERCHANGES OF INFORMATION MADE POSSIBLE BY 
REPORTS AS PART OF REGULAR MEETINGS.  FOR EXAMPLE, THE ASUAF 
AND STAFF COUNCIL PRESIDENTS ARE NON-VOTING MEMBERS OF THE 
UAF FACULTY SENATE, AND REPORT ON THE WORK OF THEIR 
INDIVIDUAL GOVERNANCE ORGANIZATIONS AT EACH MEETING OF THE 
FACULTY SENATE.  THE FACULTY SENATE PRESIDENT ALSO DELIVERS 
A REPORT ON SENATE ACTIVITIES AT EACH MEETING OF THE STAFF 
COUNCIL.  

	ISSUES CAN ARISE WITHIN GOVERNANCE THAT REQUIRE THE 
ATTENTION OF MORE THAN JUST ONE GOVERNANCE BODY.  IN SUCH A 
CASE, THE ISSUE CAN EITHER BE BROUGHT DIRECTLY TO EACH BODY 
BY AN APPROPRIATE INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP (E.G., ADMINISTRATION) 
OR IT CAN BE BROUGHT TO THE UAF GOVERNANCE COORDINATING 
COMMITTEE, WHICH IS THEN CHARGED WITH THE RESPONSIBILITY.  

	THE FUNDAMENTAL OBLIGATION OF THE COORDINATING 
COMMITTEE, ONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE REASON FOR ITS CREATION, 
IS TO ASSURE TIMELY CONSIDERATION OF AN ISSUE BY EACH 
GOVERNANCE BODY AND FINAL ACTION ON THE ISSUE:  IT ACTS AS 
MONITOR OF PROGRESS AND GUARANTOR OF COMPLETION.  

	TO FURTHER AID THE COORDINATING COMMITTEE IN CARRYING 
OUT ITS OBLIGATIONS, IT ALSO SUPPORTS THE EXISTENCE OF 
CERTAIN STANDING COMMITTEES CONCERNED WITH CAMPUS-WIDE 
ACTIVITIES (SUCH AS THE HEALTH ISSUES COMMITTEE) AND 
RECEIVES REPORTS FROM OTHER COMMITTEES OUTSIDE ITS CONTROL 
WHO ARE ALSO CONCERNED WITH CAMPUS-WIDE ISSUES (SUCH AS 
THE POLICE ADVISORY BOARD).  

	THE COORDINATING COMMITTEE ALSO CREATES AD HOC 
COMMITTEES AS NEEDED TO ADDRESS PARTICULAR ISSUES NOT 
UNDER THE PURVIEW OF AN EXISTING COMMITTEE.  THE PROCEDURES 
DETAILED HEREIN DEFINE THE STRUCTURE AND WORKING OF THE UAF 
GOVERNANCE COORDINATING COMMITTEE.

***************

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #88 on 
May 3, 1999:


MOTION PASSED AS AMENDED
==========================

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to approve the establishment of a new 
degree, the Bachelor of Arts and Sciences (BAS).  


	EFFECTIVE:  	Upon Board of Regents' Approval

	RATIONALE:  	The Board of Regents has directed campuses 
		to eliminate the Bachelor of Education in Elementary 
		Education.  The Bachelor of Arts and Sciences is designed 
		to replace this degree, by providing a content alternative 
		for the preparation of teachers, which will lead up to the 
		5th year post-baccalaureate program for teacher 
		educators.  National study groups consistently have 
		recommended that content preparation be emphasized in 
		the education of teachers, which the new degree program 
		does by preparing teachers for the breadth of knowledge 
		that they must possess in order to teach elementary 
		students.


				***************


				FORMAT 3

		NEW DEGREE PROGRAM REQUEST


I.  	COVER MEMORANDUM

A.  	Name of person preparing request: John Leipzig, Interim Dean 
	College of Liberal Arts

B.  	Brief Statement of the proposed program, its objectives and 
	career opportunities:
	1.  	A new degree in Arts and Sciences (BAS) which is 
		interdisciplinary in nature constructed primarily to 
		provide breadth and depth of content in those areas 
		needed for students wishing to prepare themselves to 
		teach in elementary schools.
	2.  	A general studies degree requiring a breadth of content 
		exploration in the arts and sciences available for 
		students at the extended sites as well as at the 
		Fairbanks campus.


II.  	IDENTIFICATION OF THE PROGRAM

A.  	Description of the Program
	1.  	Program Title:  Bachelor of Arts and Sciences (BAS)
	2.  	N/A
	3.  	Admissions requirements and prerequisites. Standard 
		entrance requirement for UAF.  Entrance into the Post-
		Baccalaureate Teacher Education Program would follow 
		School of Education policies and would be separate from 
		admission to the BAS.
	4.  	Course Descriptions: Except for the new interdisciplinary 
		senior seminar courses, all courses currently are 
		approved courses at UAF.  The courses selected for 
		inclusion were intended to meet Alaska Content 
		Standards and NCATE Content Standards (included) as 
		well as being vetted by both the Task Force and the CLA 
		Academic Council as being those courses which would 
		provide a diversified degree program in the arts and 
		sciences.
	5.  	Requirements for the degree: Attached.  Three year cycle 
		of course offerings follows the current offering cycles 
		for the departmental offerings.  All courses will be 
		offered on an annual basis.  Some extended campus 
		offerings may be offered on an every other year basis.

B.  	Program Goals
	1.  	Brief identification of objectives and subsequent means 
		for their evaluation:  Given the BOR mandate to develop 
		content based teacher preparation programs, this degree 
		will be the recommended preparation avenue for 
		elementary teachers.  Ultimately the acceptance rate of 
		teachers trained on this program as well as their 
		performance on the recently mandated teacher 
		competence tests will indicate the strength of the 
		program.
	2.  	Relationship of program objectives to "Purposes of the 
		University":  As a Land-Sea-Space Grant university, 
		UAF has the responsibility for the training of teachers.  
		This degree will provide a stronger content preparation 
		for elementary teachers as well as provide a general 
		studies degree option for students wanting a broader 
		interdisciplinary approach to higher education.
	3.  	Occupational/other competencies to be achieved: 
		Content preparation in the arts and sciences for those 
		wishing to teach in the elementary schools or to receive
		a broad based interdisciplinary degree.
	4. 	Relationship of courses to the program objectives: 
		Courses were selected because they met the Alaska and 
		NCATE Content Standards while providing a 
		comprehensive overall general studies degree.


III. 	PERSONNEL DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN THE PROGRAM

A.  	List of Faculty involved in the Program including brief 
	statement of duties and qualifications:  Faculty from CLA, 
	CSEM, CNRDM, School of Education and the College of Rural 
	Alaska will cooperate in the offering of the courses.  A list 
	would include most of the teaching faculty in the university 
	since all will be involved in the content preparation of future 
	teachers.

B.  	Administrative and coordinating personnel:  The program will 
	be housed administratively in the College of Liberal Arts.  The 
	Deans of the cooperating colleges in conjunction with the 
	Director of the School of Education will provide the necessary 
	personnel to administrate the program.  A director of the 
	program will coordinate all aspects of the degree. 

C.  	Classified Personnel: Since most courses will be 
	administrated by the departments the support for those 
	courses will rest in the departments.  Support for the degree 
	will be attached to the director of the BAS program position in 
	terms of having some dedicated classified support provided by 
	the collaborating colleges and the School of Education. 


IV. 	ENROLLMENT INFORMATION

A.  	Projected enrollment/present enrollment:  Approximately 350 
	students are currently enrolled in elementary education 
	programs.  This number of students is anticipated to continue.

B.  	How determined/who surveyed/how surveyed:  Data provided by 
	the School of Education based on trend data for demand for the 
	B.Ed.

C.  	Minimum enrollments to maintain program in years 1-5.  Not 
	applicable since this will be the primary preparation route for 
	elementary teachers replacing the B.Ed.

D.  	Maximum enrollment which program can accommodate:  Again 
	not applicable since the degree is made up of a multitude of 
	disciplinary offerings.


V. 	NEED FOR PROGRAM

A.  	Required for other programs:  Will take the place of the B.Ed in 
	Elementary Education.

B.  	Employment market needs:  The Alaska Teacher Placement 
	Service provides a yearly comprehensive report on "Statewide 
	Educator Supply and Demand".  This document contends that 
	there will be an increasing demand for teachers in the state 
	with a large gap between jobs available and those filled by 
	UAF graduates.  Included is the 1998 report.


VI. 	OTHER

The Board of Regents directive to eliminate B.Ed. programs 
necessitates that the colleges determine content alternatives for 
the preparation of teachers, which will lead up to the 5th year post-
baccalaureate program for teacher educators.  Especially important 
is the development of an elementary program that appropriately 
prepares teachers for the breadth of knowledge that they must 
provide to elementary students.  Visiting in the life space of an 
elementary teacher provides guidance for the development of the 
present degree.


VII. 	RESOURCE IMPACT

A.  	Budget:  Currently the Provost Office and the College of Rural 
	Alaska are assessing the costs of this program.  But with that 
	said and irrespective of the design, if we are to prepare 
	teachers at UAF the university ultimately has to bear the cost 
	of doing so.  To get us started CLA has committed to identify a 
	person to take on the directorship of the BAS and to work with 
	the Advising Center and the other colleges to ensure that 
	sufficient resources are available to support the programs 
	startup.

B.  	Facilities/space needs: Delightfully, I can report that no 
	additional space will be required for the program.

C.  	Credit hour production: Since the bulk of the courses are 
	disciplinary driven the credit hours will stay with the 
	disciplines offering the courses.

D.  	Faculty:  Disciplinary faculty cover courses.  A cross-
	disciplinary team will advise the director or the BAS on 
	Academic, Advising and other issues.

E. 	Library Media materials:  The structure of the degree being 
	interdisciplinary means that specialized library media are 
	unnecessary.  


VIII.	RELATION OF PROGRAM TO OTHER PROGRAMS IN THE SYSTEM

A.  	Effects of enrollments elsewhere in the system:  We intend to 
	coordinate the offerings with the BLA at UAS.  This 
	coordination will allow us to maximize delivery and minimize 
	cost.  UAA doesn't have the extensive off campus delivery 
	demand but we will be looking at this degree as well.

B.  	Does it duplicate/approximate programs anywhere in the 
	system? If so, what is the justification for the duplication:  
	Not really but if anything the BLA at UAS is the closest 
	approximation.  We will be working together to ensure rural 
	access to degrees to prepare teachers.  With this said still the 
	BAS is a more depth intensive curriculum with a greater 
	concentration in science and mathematics than the BLA.

C.  	How does the program relate to research and service 
	activities?  Service to teachers in the state is an advantage of 
	this program.  The program will provide opportunities for  
	students interested in elementary teaching to become involved 
	in the classrooms early in the degree process which certainly 
	enhances our service mission.  In terms of scholarship this 
	degree would provide the opportunity for researchers to 
	ascertain the impact of heightened content preparation in 
	terms of teacher success on competency exams and students 
	progress.


IX.  	IMPLEMENTATION/TERMINATION

A.  	Date of Implementation:  Optimistically Fall of 1999 with 
	catalog copy the following year.

B.  	Plans for recruiting students:  Will be the primary recruiting 
	tool for students wishing to be elementary teachers.  Will 
	coordinate with the Executive Director of Admissions and 
	Enrollment Management regarding student recruitment.

C. 	Termination date, if any:  This will follow the standard review 
	process for all degrees.

D. 	Plans for phasing out program if it proves unsuccessful:  If 
	required, the Provost will appoint a task force to phase out the 
	program.  

E.	Assessment of the Program:  An outcomes assessment plan 
	will include a review of student performance on the PRAXIS 
	exams.  Admission into the post-baccalureate licensure 
	program will be a further indication of successful preparation 
	of students in the program.  Additional assessment will be 
	patterned after the requirements for the NCATE self-study and 
	will lead toward accreditation of the program.  

F.	Admission to the B.Ed. program will not be suspended until the 
	B.A.S. is deliverable in rural Alaska.


X:  	REGENTS GUIDELINES

The proposed BAS will provide one of the strongest content bases 
for the preparation of elementary teachers currently available in the 
states.  This degree meets or exceeds the Alaska Content Standards 
as well as the NCATE content standards.  With the Regents directive 
of eliminating B.Ed. programs in favor of content driven preparation 
programs this is a strong response to that initiative.  Two faculty 
committees and four deans at UAF have been involved in this process 
to date and the goal is to provide a credible interdisciplinary degree 
that meets the needs for elementary school teacher preparation.  
This degree meets intent and quality requirements for a general 
studies degree which will provide an excellent content preparations 
base for future teachers.

Programs section.


Interdisciplinary senior seminars for the B.A.S. degree:  A brief 
description

Three new courses were created (LAS 410, 420, 430) to provide a 
integrative experience across content areas tied to teaching 
practice.  B.A.S. students will be required to take the Scientific 
Research (LAS 410) course and either the Social Science Inquiry and 
Research (LAS 420) or the Humanities: Creative Activities and 
Research (LAS 430) course.  

LAS 410 covers the formulation and testing of scientific hypotheses 
using field observation and experimentation.  Students will be 
required to complete two projects one of which would involve 
working within a local K-12 school.  

LAS 420 and LAS 430 examine critical events which have shaped the 
modern world from the perspectives of different disciplines and 
differently situated actors.  Both courses examine the processes in 
the social sciences or humanities that help us make sense of our 
world and how different people hold differing worldviews.  LAS 420 
and LAS 430 have project assignments that would have students 
working on K-8 teaching assignments.  Both courses will involve 
School of Education Faculty working with College of Liberal Arts 
faculty.  

All three LAS courses have been developed to be written intensive 
and 1/2 oral intensive.  These three courses should clarify for the 
outside observer that the intent of the degree is to prepare K-8 
teachers.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #88 on 
May 3, 1999:


MOTION PASSED
==============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to approve the following procedure 
regarding laguage credit for the Core Curriculum:


CREDIT FOR TESTING:  UAF will accept as language credit for the 
CORE curriculum the successful completion of accredited testing in 
languages not offered by UAF.  ONLY tests that are equivalent to the 
first two semesters of specifically LANGUAGE STUDY (5+5 or 3+3+3 
in ASL) will count toward CORE.  Other language tests and transfer 
credit will continue to be accepted for humanities credit.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Upon Chancellor's Approval

	RATIONALE:  	Currently, UAF lacks a formal procedure for 
		handling work in languages not offered as UAF, as it 
		pertains to the core curriculum option in the 
		"Perspectives on the Human Condition."  This motion 
		provides a procedure.


***************

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #88 on 
May 3, 1999:


MOTION PASSED AS AMENDED
==========================

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to approve the following minimum 
requirements for Master's Degrees.


Master's Degree Requirements

The University of Alaska Fairbanks offers two catagories of 
master's degrees:  1) research-oriented (thesis or project) and 2) 
practice-oriented (non-thesis) master's degrees.  Research-oriented 
programs prepare graduate students for scholarly or research 
activity directed mainly toward the acquisition of new knowledge, 
while that of practice-oriented graduate programs prepare graduate 
students for professional practice directed mainly toward 
application or transmission of existing knowledge.  All degree 
requirements must be completed within a seven-year time period.  
The minimum requirements for a master' s degree at the University 
of Alaska Fairbanks are as follows (individual departments may have 
additional requirements):

Requirements

1. 	Formulate a unified degree program, in cooperation with your 
graduate advisory committee.  Degree programs must be composed of 
courses in the discipline or clearly related to and/or supportive of 
that discipline.  All courses to be applied toward the degree must be 
approved by the advisory committee and follow the requirements set 
forth by the department that sponsors the degree.

2. 	Specific requirements for the master's degree are:

	a. 	Submit a Graduate Study Plan (GSP), Appointment of 
		Committee form, and annual Report of Committee form 
		to the Graduate School.  It is suggested that the GSP and 
		Appointment of Committee forms be submitted by the 
		end of the first year of study.

	b. 	Be registered for at least 6 credits per year (fall, 
		spring, summer) or have an approved leave of absence 
		on file.

	c. 	Pass a written and/or oral comprehensive examination 
		which may be combined with a project or thesis defense,  
		OR in some programs (e.g. the MBA program) a capstone 
		course OR SYNTHESIZING PAPER, that includes 
		demonstration of the ability to synthesize information 
		in the field at a level appropriate for a master's degree, 
		may be substituted for a comprehensive examination.

	d. 	Submit an Advancement to Candidacy form to the 
		Graduate School.  Once submitted, this form supplants 
		the GSP and serves to formally establish specific degree 
		requirements.

	e. 	If a thesis or project is required, pass an oral defense 
		of the thesis/project.

	f. 	Submit an application for graduation and be registered 
		for at least 3 graduate credits in the semester in which 
		the degree is to be awarded.

	g. 	Complete all degree requirements within the seven year 
		time limit allowed.

Credit Requirements

	a. 	To earn a master's degree, you must satisfactorily 
		complete a minimum of 30 semester credits.

	b. 	At least [[24]] 21 semester credits, including those 
		earned for thesis and research/project, must be at the 
		600-level.  The rest may be made up of 300-400 level 
		credits.

	c. 	No 100-, 200- or 500-level credits may be applied 
		toward master's degree requirements.

	d. 	A maximum of 12 semester credits of thesis (699) 
		and/or research (698) may be applied toward degree 
		requirements.  You may enroll in more than 12 thesis 
		and/or research credits, but only l2 may be applied 
		toward your degree.  When a thesis is required, it must 
		carry 6 or more credits. In nonthesis programs, a 
		maximum of 6 credits may be devoted to research.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Fall 1999

	RATIONALE: 	The master's degree requirements, passed 
		during UAF faculty senate  meeting #71 eliminated all 
		non-thesis master's degrees except those that fall under 
		the professional category.  Eliminating these non-thesis 
		degrees has serious ramifications for students pursuing 
		master's degrees in several programs.  The intent of the 
		original motion was to set minimum standards and 
		reduce the disparity in requirements for different 
		categories of master's degrees.  In the end the motion 
		served to complicate the master's degree requirements 
		and left at least 23 master's degrees out of compliance 
		with the new requirements.  Bringing these degrees into 
		compliance would likely result in a drop in graduate 
		applications since these new requirements are more 
		stringent than those of many universities across the 
		nation.  This new motion makes minor alterations to the 
		master's degree requirements as they existed prior to 
		meeting #71 and insures that non-thesis master's 
		degrees which are a vital part of  the UAF graduate 
		curriculum will continue to be offered in a manner 
		competititve with similar programs at other 
		universities.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #88 on 
May 3, 1999:


MOTION PASSED 
==============


The UAF Faculty Senate moves to recommend that the Board of 
Regents change its policy 05.10.01, section I (Tuition and Student 
Fees) to enable foreign students to be exempt from the non-resident 
surcharge after their first year.  


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE:   	Previously, foreign students at UAF were 
		treated like out-of-state students:  they paid resident 
		tuition after their first year.  The rules changed, 
		however, and now they pay non-resident tuition for all 
		their years at UAF.  This reduces foreign students' 
		incentives to attend our University, at a time when we 
		seek to internationalize our student body.  Most foreign 
		students are serious about their academic work, 
		contribute diversity to the campus community, and link 
		our programs/activities to those abroad.  Further, the 
		cost of eliminating non-resident tuition for foreign 
		students is likely to be recouped through a substantial 
		increase in the number of such students at UAF.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #88 on

MOTION PASSED
==============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the UAF Faculty 
Appointment and Evaluation Policies and Regulations for the 
Evaluation of Faculty: Initial Appointment, Annual Review, 
Reappointment, Promotion, Tenure, and Sabbatical Leave as attached. 


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately
				Upon Chancellor's Approval

	RATIONALE:  	The Senate's motion will revise and simplify 
		the two documents of the Faculty Appointment and 
		Evauation Policies and the Regulations for the Evaluation

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #88 on 
May 3, 1999:


MOTION PASSED AS AMENDED
==========================

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to recommend to the Provost that the 
following administrators be reviewed on a four year cycle:


Executive Dean, College of Rural Alaska
[[Director, School of Agriculture & Land Resource Management
Director, UAF Museum
Director, Institute of Marine Science
Director, Bristol Bay Campus
Director, Chukchi Campus
Director, Interior-Aleutians Campus
Director, Tanana Valley Campus
Director, Geophysical Institute]]
Dean, School of Fisheries & Ocean Sciences
[[Director of Library]]
Dean of Graduate School
[[Director, School of Mineral Engineering]]
Dean, College of Natural Resource Development & Management
[[Director, School of Management
Director, School of Education]]
Dean, College of Liberal Arts
Dean, College of Science, Engineering, & Math
[[Director, Institute of Arctic Biology
Director, Institute of Northern Engineering
Director, Kuskokwim Campus
Director, Northwest Campus
Director, Alaska Cooperative Extension
Director, Center for Distance Education
Director, Arctic Region Supercomputer Center
Director, International Arctic Research Center]]

(If interim administrators are still in place after four years they 
should be considered for evaluation.)

(Any other administrators will be reviewed on an ad hoc basis when 
requested by 25 percent of the faculty in their unit.)


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE:  	The Appeals and Oversight Committee was 
		tasked during fall semester 1998 with reviewing the 
		policy for the evaluation of administrators.  The primary 
		qualification for selection for periodic review by the 
		Provost's Office was administrators holding academic 
		rank whose positions directly impact the academic 
		programs and whose performance directly affects the 
		ability of faculty to carry out their academic duties.

		The committee met at its ninth and last meeting of the 
		Spring semester and reviewed previous policy (Dec. 17, 
		1990, Mtg. #23, May 7, 1990, Mtg. #19 and Feb. 8,1996, 
		Mtg. #61) concerning evaluation of administrators.  The 
		committee recommended resubmission of the list of 
		administrative positions for periodic review based on 
		the rationale determined by previous Senate motions.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #88 on 
May 3, 1999:


MOTION PASSED
==============


The UAF Faculty Senate moves to recommend a plan for the 
evaluation of the Office of Chancellor, University of Alaska 
Fairbanks.

	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE:  	The purpose of any assessment is to enhance 
		the quality and contribution of the University.  The 
		Faculty Appeals & Oversight Committee sought 
		information from other colleges regarding their 
		experience with senior officer evaluation.  The 
		Chancellor Assessment Plan is based on information 
		derived from a publication by The Association of 
		Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, 
		Washington, D.C.; Presidential Assessment--A Guide to 
		the Periodic Review of the Performance of Chief 
		Executives, by John Nason, 1984.


				***************


CHANCELLOR ASSESSMENT


PURPOSE

The purpose of the evaluation is to enable the Board to assess the 
performance of the Chancellor.

To develop strategies to enhance strengths and correct weaknesses.

To define by the Chancellor and perceive by the President and Board 
of Regents the scope and role of the Office and the Chancellor's 
performance in it.


CHANCELLOR EVALUATION:  OBJECTIVES

Identify specific areas of institutional management that need 
improvement.

Develop evaluation procedures and foster the kind of interaction that 
would direct university resources toward educational change and 
service.

Encourage a mutually supportive relationship between the various 
governing boards and the Chancellor.

Clarify the balance between internal and external views of the 
decision making  process.

Provide the Chancellor with an assessment of the way in which s/he 
is perceived to be fulfilling the institution's expectations by 
faculty, staff, students, alumni and the public.

Support other aspects of University performance review by focusing 
attention upon management and by using evaluation as a vehicle to 
analyze institutional assumptions and priorities.


EVALUATION COMPONENTS

A conscious intent to evaluate through foresight and planning.

Appoint an individual or committee to take charge of the evaluation 
review. The committee should consist of faculty, staff, students and 
alumni.

Any review of the Chancellor's performance should take into account 
the unique characteristics of the University and its governance 
structure.

Prior to an evaluation, criteria must be explicit, understood and 
agreed to by all concerned.

Consider beginning with a self-evaluation. This may be the most 
important component of the whole process.

The Chancellor should have an opportunity to review and respond to 
the committee's report.

The committee must be sensitive to the Chancellor's legitimate 
concerns and yet insist on having the final word.

After the review committee has considered the results of the 
evaluation, it should be made public by the Chancellor's supervisor.

Time is an important factor in conducting evaluations.  An 
evaluation frequency of five years is recommended, with the 
evaluation process completed within a four month time period.
