Sample Role Statements

A role statement is a document that broadly describes the multiple responsibilities of a faculty member at Utah State University and outlines the performance expectations that the University has of faculty members. The role statement establishes general parameters and principles for the employment of faculty at Utah State University.

Recent updates to the master role statement template for assistant professors have resulted in the following draft document: Master Assistant Professor Role Statement Template. The Provost's Office is currently working with each academic unit to include these revisions in their unique role statements.

For use across departments and academic units, the Provost's Office has also created the following document: Master Department Head Role Statement Template.

Below are sample role statements from each academic unit at Utah State University. These are provided as examples. Each faculty member should work with his or her Department Head and Dean to construct their individual role statement.
