Part III: Evidence for Meeting Each Standard

Standard Five: Faculty Qualifications, Performance, and Development

Faculty are qualified and model best professional practices in scholarship, service, and teaching, including the assessment of their own effectiveness as related to candidate performance; they also collaborate with colleagues in the disciplines and schools. The unit systematically evaluates faculty performance and facilitates professional development. Evidence will be provided in this section that supports the statement that Pacific University meets this standard.

Element Five: Collaboration

College of Education faculty members are routinely sought by members of the undergraduate and graduate faculty across the Pacific University campus to assist them with planning instruction and assessment. Many collaborative projects have been established, with and without support from external grants.  Some of the reported projects are listed below.

In addition, College of Education faculty members have a very high level of collaboration with P-12 schools and university divisions (as documented in Element One, Table 5.1.5 and in Element Four, Table 5.4.1).
