Appointment, Performance, and Compensation
Annual Merit ReviewDescription: Faculty activity and progress on the three measures of research, teaching and service is reviewed by the member’s department chair, the vice deans, and the dean. This review forms the basis for the department chair to provide feedback on performance, and for annual merit increases.

Timing: The FAR is open in the period between fall and spring semesters. Chair feedback is provided in the late spring, when final increases are approved.
