Affected Parties

All faculty

Policy Language

All faculty members must complete the Faculty Portfolio every year according to the established timeline.

Policy Rationale

Liberty University acknowledges that members of the teaching profession are responsible for updating and validating their faculty qualifications annually. Faculty are also responsible for evaluating their performance and for developing and attaining higher standards of professional competence. Periodic evaluation assists individual instructors in reviewing their performance and provides needed information to enable professional growth and development. These evaluations involve students in the process of course and instructor evaluation. Moreover, evaluations provide supervisors with a basis for performance appraisal, promotion decisions, and budget processes.

Definition of Glossary Terms

Faculty: All residential and online (distance education), full-time and part-time, teaching and administrative faculty
