360 Evaluation for Principal Investigators Leading Research Groups

The 360 evaluation process takes place in two annual cycles of the assistant professor’s appointment in order to receive input from trainees, peers and staff about their interpersonal and mentoring performance. The evaluations are performed after completion of approximately two years as an assistant professor (before reappointment) and again one year after re-appointment. The process is considered primarily developmental; i.e., to assist in identifying strengths and developing goals for improvement; but it serves an evaluative purpose as the reports are included in the reappointment and promotion file.  This 360 evaluation focuses on management and leadership skills in five domains:  

  • Communication and Interpersonal Skills
  • Expectations, Goal-Setting, and Feedback
  • Professionalism and Ethical Conduct*
  • Wellness and Well-Being
  • Career and Professional Development of Others

*Focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and culture is included under Professionalism and Ethical Conduct.
