The University is committed to fostering the leadership of its academic officers and enhancing their effectiveness in a constructive way. Performance appraisals are a means to support this commitment and the broad goals of managerial accountability. At its meeting held on January 17, 2012, AAPC passed a resolution that there would be an annual assessment of the said academic officers starting from 2012. Annual exercises were duly conducted in 2012 and onwards.

The evaluative review incorporates the use of a standardized paper-based survey comprised of a common set of questions. This survey is conducted annually for input on a voluntary and unnamed basis. All members of the academic full-time staff are invited to participate in the survey (except for the person being reviewed in the corresponding survey). Faculty Offices are requested to issue the questionnaires in due course.
