The Tripartite Committee of faculty, management, and students was formed in 2000 to review the current student evaluation instrument and recommend changes.  There were two basic sources of input considered by the committee:  (1) the 1998 State System Board of Governors policy on student Evaluation of Teaching and (2) IUP faculty, administration, and students.

IUP-APSCUF and Management agree to use the attached revised instrument for student evaluation of courses and faculty members.  A full committee report is kept in the Associate Provost’s Office.

Agreement Meet and Discuss:  July 16, 2003
Expires:  June 30, 2013
