The annual evaluation and planning process provides faculty with an opportunity to report on their accomplishments for the current year and to plan their teaching, research and service agendas for the coming year. This process consists of an evaluation phase and a planning phase.
All faculty members—tenured, tenure track, contractual, full time and half time—are required to participate in this; adjunct faculty are not. The faculty member completes an Annual Personal Faculty Report for the current year and transmits it to the division chair.
The faculty member also submits the USM Survey of Faculty Non-Instructional Productivity to the chair.
The faculty member completes the Planned Faculty Portfolio form according to the instructions on the form. This form must be revised during the academic year if there is any change to the percentages allotted to each of Instruction, Scholarship/Creative Work and/or Service. This form is due to the division chair at the same time as the Annual Personal Faculty Report.
The faculty member also completes the Outside Employment Form for the upcoming year and submits it to the division chair.
The necessary forms provided on this page should be filled out electronically and saved to your computer. From there, you can print them and provide the hard copies to your division chair. We also recommend you keep a copy for yourself.
