Performance Management, the University’s performance review process for full- and part-time staff, is an annual cycle that begins in July of each year and ends the following May. Every cycle, each staff member works with his or her supervisor to 1) set written goals, 2) check progress at mid-year, and 3) evaluate accomplishments at the end of the year. Participation in the performance review process is required for merit raise consideration at the end of each annual cycle.
The process is managed within the University’s online Performance Management system called eNDeavor. Goals are entered into the eNDeavor system at the beginning of the cycle, and progress is reviewed and reported within the system throughout the cycle. All staff members will have access to the eNDeavor system soon after they are hired.
If you began work at the University at a time other than the beginning of the cycle, you should work with your supervisor to determine how to get up to speed.
The University offers a variety of education benefits such as scholarships and tuition reimbursement programs to help faculty, staff, retirees, their spouses and children achieve their educational goals. More about education benefits and eligibility.
