Performance Reviews: Information for ALVSCE Supervisors

Every benefits-eligible employee is required to receive a performance review annually. Career Conversations is the recommended format for staff in the Division of Agriculture, Life and Veterinary Sciences, and Cooperative Extension. UA Vitae is the annual performance report used for all University of Arizona faculty.

Academic and administrative unit heads and all those who report to Vice President Burgess have their annual performance review following their unit's annual review session with the Executive Council (as applicable). These reviews typically take place in February, March and April. Contact: Gloria Anguiano,, 520-621-3426

Five-year Administrative Reviews

Per UHAP 5.3, all department heads, school directors, deans, and other designated administrators will have a five-year administrative review in order to provide an opportunity outside of the annual performance review to assess long-range goals and objectives. The Office of the Vice President coordinates these reviews each year using procedures set forth by UHAP and the Office of Faculty Affairs.
