Annual Professional Responsibilities Report & Plan

Dept. Chair Self Eval


The APRP is the faculty self-reporting evaluation tool which is your opportunity to report what you have achieved in the current academic year and what you plan to accomplish in the next. The packet of your department’s APRPs and departmental goals is due to the Office of the Academic Deans by May 1st of each year. Annual faculty submit their Portfolio by February 1st.

The information is needed for such projects as Program Review, and for assessment purposes (student evaluation and course improvement), Strategic Planning, AQIP initiatives, and accreditation. To those ends, it is vital to describe roles and activities using measurable objectives. The academic deans use the APRPs to celebrate faculty achievement.

Please email the APRP to your department chair who reviews all the reports/ plans from the department and submits them, along with a summary report of the previous year and department goals, to the office of the academic deans by May 1st. The deans are committed to reviewing and responding to the APRPs in a timely fashion

Use the template below for activities and plans.

See ARTICLE X – Professional Growth, A through C, for contract language.
