1. Each CBE full-time faculty member prepares a Five-year Development Plan during the Fall Semester of each academic year and submits it to the department chair.
2. The four areas covered in this plan are: (1) Plans for improving or maintaining teaching effectiveness; (2) Goals for research and scholarly activity; (3) Plans for interaction with professional organizations, businesses, or government agencies; (4) Plans for service to the university, CBE, or department.
3. The department chair reviews each plan, meets with the faculty member to discuss the plan (especially changes from the previous year’s plan), and prepares a brief summary report that goes into the faculty member’s professional file.
