RE:    Midcareer Appraisal Files

This is to remind you that the midcareer appraisal (MCA) should provide a candid prediction of an assistant professor’s probability for promotion, based on an analytical evaluation of the candidate’s performance in teaching, research or creative work, and professional and university service.  The MCA should contain a department vote, and the entire document should be provided to, and discussed with, the candidate.  In order to avoid ambiguity, the MCA should be clearly labeled as “Positive,” “Negative,” or “Cautionary.”

Midcareer appraisal files often include a recommendation for reappointment or for a merit.  If this is the case, the reappointment/merit recommendation must be separate from the MCA appraisal with a separate department vote.  To assist departments in documenting MCA files appropriately, we have revised the Midcareer Appraisal checklist (UCI-AP-37) to indicate that two separate letters and separate votes are required.

 If you have any questions regarding midcareer appraisal, please call me at 824-7371.
