The most critical element in the first year of the Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence (CAFE) has been the completion of a gap analysis regarding campus support of faculty development. What has Missouri S&T done well and where has the campus fallen short? What should CAFE do to enhance the performance of faculty?
This report, a response to those questions, is based largely upon 80 interviews. Thirty-one of the interviews were with those who assess faculty performance, ranging from University of Missouri President Mun Choi, Missouri S&T Interim Chancellor Chris Maples, and Provost Robert Marley down through deans, associate deans, department chairs and the four faculty members who last chaired the campus tenure and promotion committee. The rest of the interviews were with full-time faculty at all ranks, including non-tenure-track (NTT) faculty. In addition, three surveys of campus faculty have been helpful: a 2015 NTT survey, a 2016 Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) survey, and a 2017 campus climate survey.
