Comprehensive Standard 3.2.10 - Evaluation of administrators
The institution evaluates the effectiveness of its administrators, including the chief executive officer, on a periodic basis.
Judgment of Compliance
Davidson College is in compliance with Comprehensive Standard 3.2.10.
Rationale for Judgment of Compliance
The Board of Trustees of Davidson College is responsible for the evaluation of the President. Article II.4 of the Bylaws of the Trustees of Davidson College states:
It is usually during its spring meeting that the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees discusses the President’s performance during the preceding year. The context for that evaluation is an assessment of all aspects of the College, including the academic program, athletics, fundraising, administrative policies and functions, and fiscal stewardship. The process will be articulated specifically for Davidson in a set of guidelines currently being prepared by the Chair of the Board of Trustees.
The six other College officers report to the President who reviews their performance annually. Conducted at the close of the academic year, the performance reviews cover goals from the past year, and an assessment of success in meeting them and goals for the coming year based on that assessment, as well as priorities identified by the Trustees and the President.
All other administrative staff participate in the Performance Development Plan process each year. During July and August, each staff member meets with his of her supervisor to review the past year and plan for the coming year. Prior to that meeting, the supervisor will have prepared a Coaching Sheet to provide a basis for that meeting. The Performance Development Plan is then prepared by the staff member and reviewed by the supervisor; it includes goals and strengths, and it notes strengths that can be built upon during the year. This process is summarized on page 21 of the Employee Guide and on the Human Resources Web site.
