Faculty Evaluations and Termination Procedures.
National Faculty Association of Community and Junior Colleges, Washington, DC.
These procedures--developed by a special commission of the National Faculty Association of Community and Junior Colleges--describe the frequency, nature, process, and scope of such actions. The criteria and methods of evaluation are set at an initial conference between the evaluation team and the faculty member, and the college is obligated to make a genuine effort to assist each member in the improvement of his instruction. If a faculty member's contract is recommended for non-renewal by the evaluation team, the proceedings shall be reviewed by a Professional Practices Committee made up of three faculty members selected by the Faculty Association. If this committee recommends dismissal or non-renewal, then the Governing Board may act in accordance with established procedures and pursue the recommended action. Fundamental to the establishment of these procedures are the following concepts: (1) such procedures should apply to all faculty--probationary or tenured--from initial date of employment; (2) evaluation and the possibility of dismissal action are inseparable; (3) evaluation should be made by colleagues in the same area of specialization; (4) evaluation should be based on the particular instructor's objectives and instructional environment; and (5) only those procedures that are conducive to improvement and that cannot be applied in an arbitrary and threatening way should be used.
