A department's unit standards, in conjunction with the collective bargaining agreement (CBA), provide performance standards and expectations for the faculty. Each department's current unit standards are posted on the Department Reports page.

As required by the CBA, Unit Standards are revised every five years in a process that involves review by the Dean, the Unit Standards Committee, and the Provost. Unit standards for Missoula College are presented to the Dean and then the Provost for approval.

Unit Standards Review Process:

Step 1: Departmental Discussion (BEFORE OCTOBER 30)

Step 2: Submission for Review (BY NOVEMBER 30)
