Faculty performance is subject to regular and systematic evaluation. The process of faculty evaluation should include self-evaluation, assessment by Division Chairs and the Vice President for Academic Affairs as well as peer evaluations and student evaluations. All full- time faculty, tenured and non-tenured, are subject to faculty evaluation.
What the faculty does or fails to do is crucial to the reputation and success of the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. Teaching excellence shall be the first priority for all faculty. Performance as a faculty member, however, requires more than excellence in teaching.
Salaries for new faculty, administrators, and staff will be set at the time of appointment by the Board of Regents upon the recommendation of the President. The President, in formulating a recommendation, will consult with the appropriate vice presidents. Factors to be considered include:
