The Faculty Association of the University of Calgary, in accordance with its policy concerning the Assessment of Deans and equivalents, has completed a survey of the academic staff members in Faculties where the Dean or Dean-equivalent is approaching the end of their term — including the Dean of the Faculty of Nursing, Vice-Provost (Libraries and Cultural Resources), Dean of the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, and the Vice-Provost (Teaching and Learning) — to provide direct input to the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) and the review committee (if applicable) regarding the performance of the Deans and Dean equivalents of these Faculties. Surveys related to the Dean and Vice-Provost (Graduate Studies) and Dean of Social Work have been completed in accordance with the Association’s policy which also requires surveying the membership at the two-year point in the terms of all Deans and equivalents.
The results of these surveys were shared with the respective Deans, or equivalents, and the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) subject to response thresholds in the policy. In accordance with the Faculty Association policy, the quantitative results (statistics) of the survey have been released to the Association membership in an attachment to this newsletter. There was an insufficient response rate for the Vice-Provost (Teaching and Learning) survey for the results to be compiled.
