Senior Leadership Development Assessments
Every five years, each Senior Management Group (SMG) member participates in a leadership development assessment (or five-year review). This formative review process is designed to provide broader feedback than is usual with an annual performance evaluation, including assessment of administrative effectiveness, identification of accomplishments and challenges, and evaluation of progress toward campus and unit goals.
