Role Statements

Role statements establish general employment parameters and performance expectations for USU faculty. Faculty members are expected to carry out the major university functions of teaching, research or creative endeavors, Extension, librarianship, and service. Individual role statements designate percentages for each area of professional service, and percentages guide the relative evaluation weight given to performance in each area. Emphasis in professional service areas varies within and among academic departments and individual faculty role statements.
