Online Student Evaluations of Teaching

Executive officers should be vigilant about the quality of instruction in their units, intervening where necessary to help department members achieve the level of performance that the university expects and requires. All faculty should be made aware of how teaching is evaluated and of how such evaluations are used as data in decisions about retention, promotion and tenure, and salary adjustments. Since teaching evaluations are an important component of Promotion and Tenure dossiers, unit heads should be certain that their faculty members' teaching is regularly evaluated both by students and by peers.

The Office for Faculty Affairs offers all Colleges and Departments the opportunity to participate in an online course evaluation system provided via the Office for Faculty Affairs. Detailed information about the UIC Student Evaluation of Teaching Program can be found here.
