Performance Management Staff Performance Reviews

Access the portal at

Every staff member contributes to the overall success of our University.  All staff members, no matter how skilled, need opportunities for continued learning and success.  Both employees and supervisors have a responsibility to actively participate in the performance management process.  The process includes planning for performance by setting clearly defined objectives ), on-going coaching (formal and informal), and highlighting success, while emphasizing the importance of follow-through.  This process aligns with the University’s mission, specifically providing opportunities for learning, discovery, and engagement.
