Guidelines for Evaluating Leadership
The following lists are illustrative only and
are intended as a guide to determine whether an individual faculty member has
met the requirements for promotion to Senior Lecturer. One item from the major
initiatives list might in itself be sufficient to confirm the individualís
leadership or might only be sufficient if combined with two to four of the
items from the significant leadership contributions list. Similarly, all
items on the lists will not be of equal value. Some factors that might impact
the value are:
impact of the effort expended,
relative prestige (of awards, publications, etc.), or
differing levels of responsibility.
The candidateís combined activity and
achievement must be of high quality, must exceed routinely assigned teaching
and service, and must include demonstrated leadership.

activities or the equivalent:
and sustaining a study abroad experience for students,
substantial internal or external funding or grant monies,
