Dear Faculty members of McGill University

In accordance with the Mcgill Faculty Review Policy, all tenure system faculty must be reviewed on an annual basis, and the review must be based on “clearly formulated and relevant written performance criteria to clarify expectations.” In addition, every faculty member must be “informed in writing of the results of his/her review by the unit administrator.” For jointly appointed faculty, the administrator of the lead unit is responsible for coordinating the annual review. These annual assessments of faculty will also be reflected in recommendations regarding merit salary adjustments, reappointment, tenure, and promotion. All faculty members must be evaluated and informed annually, in writing, about their progress. The Faculty Review policy provides principles and guidelines for implementing these reviews.
