Course Evaluations

About Course Evaluations

According to the Collective Bargaining Agreement (10.220), each faculty member must have at least one course evaluated each semester they teach. The Office of the Provost coordinates a course evaluation process that units may use for their evaluation needs. More information about how to use this system is provided on this website.

 Find out if your school, college, or department uses this system by looking at the current course tree. If your school, college, or department is not listed and you would like to start using the IAS Course Evaluation System for the coming semester of if you have any questions, please email the course evaluation coordinator.
