Leadership Challenges: Faculty Effectiveness and Evaluation with Leah Dvorak

This session will review CUWAA’s full-time faculty annual evaluation form, process, and timeline. We will discuss sources of evidence used to ensure that our faculty are effective teachers addressing the mission of Concordia, productive scholars, and contributing service to the university, church, community, and/or profession. We will also cover the many resources CUWAA provides to help faculty achieve their goals, including the CELT (for teaching), the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (for research, grants, and scholarship), the full-time faculty onboarding process, and how department chairs/program directors can (and should) be involved in observing, mentoring and supporting their faculty.

Below are resources and the recording for this session that occurred Wednesday April 19, Noon – 1:00 pm Central/1:00 – 2:00 pm Eastern.

Plans for Program Assessment 2023-2024

In the 2023-2024 academic year, we will focus on GLO #3 Integrated Disciplinary Knowledge and GLO#1 Christian Faith. Next year, versions of both forms, adapted for 23-24, will be required. That means you will submit information on data collection, conclusions, recommendations on your Program Learning Outcomes aligned with GLO #3 Integrated Disciplinary Knowledge and GLO #1 Christian Faith. In subsequent years, we will recommend a cycle of review which always includes GLO #1 Christian Faith.

2023-2024 Focus GLO #3 Integrated Disciplinary Knowledge

“Our graduates integrate insights from a wide range of disciplines.”

This kind of learning engages students to build knowledge and abilities across two or more disciplines, including within courses, among courses, between coursework and practicum settings, within interprofessional education, and between academic curriculum and the university co-curriculum. Examples range from using multiple modes of inquiry, making connections among ideas and experiences, including reflecting on these connections, to synthesizing learning in new, complex situations within and beyond the campus.


  • 3.1 Combine or compare modes of inquiry, methods, or theoretical frameworks from two or more disciplines to address questions or problems (includes ULAO 3.b)
  • 3.2 Make connections from two or more disciplines to experiential learning in real world settings such as service learning, travel, practicum, clinical or internship experiences
  • 3.3 Apply multiple disciplines, roles, and perspectives in collaboration within interprofessional education (IPE) experiences
  • 3.4 Connect the curriculum and the co-curriculum  (academic learning with campus life and activities)
  • 3.5 Other (includes ULAO 3a, 3c, 3d)

Instructions for 2022-2023 Academic Program Assessment Reporting

This year the Program Assessment Report is improved from last year’s report. Where previously we had two parts for the electronic form, this year we have one part.

View the elements by clicking on the form.

A representative of every undergraduate major, stand-alone certificate and graduate or professional program should be able to complete this form by October 1, 2023, the final due date. This report describes your program activities and data on GLO #6 for the 2022-2023 academic year.

A second (optional) form is available for programs that were also working on GLO #1 Christian Faith in 2022-2023, and are able to submit information on tools, data, conclusions, and changes. This report is in addition to the 2022-2023 Program Assessment Report. View the elements by clicking on the form.
