At the fourth All Cohort Gathering seminar graduates heard from Matt Andrews PhD, Executive Associate Dean, College of Science, and Rebecca Terry PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Integrative Biology. Andrews and Terry presented on "Formalizing Annual Faculty Evaluations to Document Inclusivity, Equity, and Justice." Steps outlined to meet this goal included:

  • Meet with COS Heads and Dean to gauge enthusiasm for the addition of equity, inclusion, diversity, and social justice initiatives as a metric for annual faculty evaluation.
  • Determine the weighting of the new inclusivity, equity, and justice metric. Determine if it needs to be written into all current and/or future position descriptions.
  • Gather faculty input on the new metric by listening to potential concerns, as well as faculty ideas on actions they can take to encourage greater inclusivity, equity, and justice.
  • Roll out newly modified evaluation form college-wide
