Teaching/University Citizenship

  1. Instruction

    Faculty members are expected to demonstrate consistent evidence of teaching performance above the minimal expectations established by the Kent State University Faculty Senate. Such evidence may include, but not necessarily be limited to, sequence coordinator, supervision of Glyphix, peer and student evaluation ratings, course and curricular development, facilities development related to instruction, lab/studio supervision, notable alumni success, administrative duties, and awards associated with teaching.

  2. Advising

    In the category of Advising, which is often included with or in the category of Instruction, faculty are expected to exceed the University requirement of five hours per week reserved for student advising. Evidence may include, but is not limited to, academic and career advising, awards received, the design and implementation of advising initiatives, and extra time and effort committed to the welfare and educational development of advisees.

  3. Citizenship

    In the category of Citizenship, a faculty member is expected to give time and energy beyond teaching and advising responsibilities to activities related to the business of the School, the College, the University, and the profession, which advance their respective missions and ensure their effective and efficient operation. Examples of service performance beyond a simple and expected involvement include, but are not limited to, administrative responsibilities, active committee membership, outreach, recruitment activities, student organization sponsorship, and/or studio/lab maintenance. Service might also include active participation in professional organizations, educational organizations, and campus lectures regarding scholarship, service, or teaching.
