CFA Staff Performance Evaluation
The College of Fine Arts is committed to creating an environment in which staff can flourish and grow. Performance reviews provide an opportunity, at least once a year, for staff members to have a personal conversation with their supervisor about their contribution in the workplace and to get feedback and coaching about their job performance.
The employee will fill out the new, updated Performance Review Form either electronically or hard copy and submit it to their supervisor. Within a week the employee should meet with their supervisor to cover the various Performance Review questions and address various issues.
The CFA Staff Performance Review period opens on January 1st and closes on February 28th.

CFA Staff Professional Development
Introducing a new “matching funds” system to assist CFA Staff Members who would need professional development training not covered by the current resources within the College/University.
Designed to mirror/complement the “Dean’s Travel Funds”, this Professional Development Fund is a way that staff members throughout the College can be supported in their goals of receiving advanced training on topics that might only be offered off-campus or through other professional develo[ment organizations.
The total amount of funding available is $3,000 and will be disbursed on a first-come basis. Only staff members at .75 FTE or higher are eligible. The College will match up to the amount of the Department awards ($500 max/ 1 allowance per year), and both the Staff member and the Department Chair/Director need to complete the form.
