The evaluations team has created a Faculty Survey for you to complete. By participating in the survey, you will be able to tell us what is working or needs improvement in the Evaluation system. The survey consists of approximately 25 multiple choice questions and should only take about 10 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey there is a text box where you can respond with any comments you may want to share.
To provide anonymous feedback on the Evaluations process, take the survey.
