Department Standards

Department/Unit Standards:  Department guidelines, policies, and procedures that contain the department’s faculty unit employee evaluation criteria and procedures. Department Unit/Standards serve as a guide to candidates and evaluators during the RTP cycle.

Department/Unit Standards are reviewed periodically by the department/unit. All changes must be approved by the Provost, before being utilized for RTP purposes. Please submit department standards that have been approved by the department and college to and in Word format.  When approved by the Provost, OAPL will then add the approved date footnote to the Department Standard and route the department Standards Approval Sheet (with the final Department Standard attached) in Adobe Sign.  Once the Approval Sheet has been signed, Department/Unit Standard documents are posted below.
