Recommendations for Incorporating Student and Peer Reviews in the Faculty Evaluation Process

Effective teaching is the core of any outstanding university and is very important at every institution in The University of Texas System. UT System invests significant resources in rewarding outstanding teaching, and effective teaching is a requirement for the promotion and tenure of every faculty member. The System campuses have centers which support good teaching, and many departments work collegially to improve and augment the development of teaching within specific programs. Thus, it is entirely appropriate that excellence in teaching serves as an important foundation for a System-wide task force of faculty members and students.
