The annual review of academic professional and administrative staff provides an opportunity to assess a staff member's personal progress, achievements, personal or professional development, and individual efforts in relation to the ongoing mission and goals of the unit. Opportunity should be made for open dialogue between the employee and supervisor in which achievements can be reviewed, problems can be addressed, any changes in work loads and expectations can be detailed and discussed, and new goals can be agreed upon. For the employee, supervisor, and the college the annual review provides a record of employee performance for consideration of merit, special merit, documentation important for professional development leave or promotions, and, where necessary, requests for improvement. The annual review provides an occasion for an employee to fulfill a desire to excel.
