ESCI Unit Evaluation Plan

Unit Evaluation Plan

Department of Environmental Sciences

This departmental Unit Evaluation Plan (UEP) provides additional guidance with respect to departmental expectations for faculty appointments, promotions, and reviews and is intended to supplement those standards and expectations in the College Unit Evaluation Plan.

Adopted by the Department of Environmental Sciences on 24 April 2017.


A successful faculty member in the Department of Environmental Sciences will demonstrate participation in and contribution to three areas: teaching, scholarship, and service. In following sections the indicators of success in each of these areas at each career step for tenure-track faculty and the expectations for non-tenure track faculty are broadly described. These indicators are intended to provide guidance for persons conducting an evaluation and are not necessarily considered to be comprehensive in describing the broadest range of contributions to the three areas.
