Tips for effectively reviewing administrators: Opinion

November 3, 2021
Administrator reviews should be done carefully to ensure that they serve their institutions and support those who are being reviewed, writes George Justice. Justice describes the process of undergoing a poorly done review, and provides tips on how the administrator-review process could have been done more effectively. The author recommends tailoring the review to the circumstances the leader is in, focusing survey questions on the leader’s duties and roles, and sharing the results of the review with the person being reviewed. Justice encourages reviewers to use a formative evaluation process and to give the administrator time to improve their performance or look for another job. The Chronicle of Higher Ed (Editorial)
