Performance EvaluationLawrence University’s mission states that the university is “committed to the development of intellect and talent” and that we “actively foster a transformative process that emphasizes engaged learning, supported by an environment of rich educational opportunities.” This focus on learning extends to how we develop our staff, in addition to our students. Annual performance evaluations and regular feedback on performance are the cornerstones for effective, engaged employees. 

Performance evaluations should be completed annually for all staff during late fall/early winter. Key inputs include employee self-evaluations and supervisor evaluations which are completed in October. The Performance evaluations should be drafted and shared with the employee in November-December, with the completed evaluation submitted to Human Resources by January 15. A timeline and key links to documents are outlined below:
