Dear Colleague,

This is a reminder that faculty members are expected to undertake self-directed formative evaluation every five years, or more frequently if desired, and have a responsibility to report to their supervisor that the evaluation is completed.  The results of the evaluation stay with the faculty member, or may be shared at their discretion.  Please review Article 7.5 of the Collective Agreement, Faculty Self-Directed Formative Evaluation.  Note that members who are planning to report completion of formative evaluation of their work to their supervisor should do so by September 8th.

By way of reminder, the Provost’s website hosts an overview of the Article and its envisioned implementation (  Please feel free to contact me at, if you have any questions.

I wish everyone good health and a chance to “refill the well” this summer!

Gara Pruesse,
President, VIUFA
