Recommendation Regarding
University Required Student Feedback on Instruction

The faculty recommends the bargaining teams for the University of North Florida and the United Faculty of Florida reopen negotiations on Article 18.3, for providing for an online submission system for University required student feedback on instruction.

Further, the faculty recommends the two parties, as a part of such negotiations, specifically address and reach agreement on an acceptable minimum rate of response for student evaluations to be used in the annual evaluation and promotion and tenure processes.

Should agreement be reached, it is recommended that the design and development of such a system be undertaken by a subcommittee of the Faculty Affairs Committee. Consistent with the Bylaws of the Association the subcommittee shall have at least one member from the Faculty Affairs Committee, who shall be the chairperson of the subcommittee. Additionally, the subcommittee shall consist of representatives from the faculty, the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment, and Information Technology Services.
