As a result of the reflection on teaching, service and professional development & achievement in Part A of this self-evaluation, you may have identified areas that offer opportunities for improvement. Please consider how you would like to focus your attention in the upcoming years by establishing goals and commitments that will result in improvements that would be meaningful to you, your students, and the College. Once you have chosen the areas that you would like to focus on, please write a total of three to five goals that you believe are achievable during the next appointment term and answer the following questions for each. How will achieving the goal result in improvements that are meaningful to you, your students and/or the College? What particular actions will you take to achieve this goal? How will you know if you have been successful in achieving the goal?

Please note: Faculty members who are undergoing evaluation at the beginning of a multi-year contract should set goals that span the time period until their next full evaluation.
