Department Chair Survey

The Department Chair Survey is conducted by IPAR on behalf of the Faculty Senate at the end of each spring semester. This tool provides faculty with an opportunity to provide feedback to their chairs/directors on a regular basis and supports the university’s commitment to institutional effectiveness.

All responses and results are treated confidentially, since the reports from this survey are treated as personnel documents. The results, both numeric ratings and comments, are reported to the administrator who is evaluated and to his/her supervisor.

To be eligible for evaluation, a department chair must:

  1. have been serving in the current position at least since the start of the current academic year
  2. be serving on a permanent or interim basis
  3. have five or more eligible faculty members
  4. not concurrently be under Five-Year Review

To be eligible to participate:

  1. faculty member must hold rank as professor, associate professor, assistant professor, or other faculty title
  2. an EHRA non-faculty member must serve in either the Laupus or Joyner Library
  3. be currently employed and hold full-time appointment
  4. have met these criteria since the start of the current academic year
