Testimony Letters Due November 23
All members of the College community, and especially tenure-line and regular non-tenure track faculty members in the immediate programs of a faculty member being evaluated, are invited and encouraged to submit signed written testimony concerning faculty members being evaluated.
The dean of the college solicits written testimony from all segments of the Bard community and requests that all such testimony be sent to the Office of the Dean of the College. Evaluatees should not solicit testimony on their own behalf from current or former members of the Bard community.
If you would like to submit a letter to the evaluation file of a faculty member scheduled to be evaluated this academic year, it should be signed and sent campus mail to the Office of the Dean of the College or via e-mail as an attachment with electronic signature to [email protected] by Wednesday, November 23

Electronic Sharing Updates for 2022-2023
Beginning with the 2022-2023 academic year, the College will no longer use Google as a platform for sharing evaluation materials. The Office of the Dean of the College will continue to facilitate all faculty evaluations using Interfolio (Review, Promotion and Tenure or RPT) in accordance with the evaluation process and procedures as outlined in the Faculty Handbook.
What is Interfolio Review, Promotion & Tenure?
Interfolio Review, Promotion & Tenure is an online system for carrying out formal faculty reviews in a shared governance context (including pretenure, tenure, promotion, non-tenure-track evaluations, and senior reviews), built to help academic institutions ensure that these processes are secure, transparent, equitable, efficient, and well documented.

Materials for those up for evaluation will be shared across the divisions to ensure access for all before testimony is received by the Office of the Dean of the College and as faculty prepare for divisional discussions. Electronic sharing does not replace hard copy files, they are still available to review in person, by appointment only - please email Rachel Price, [email protected], to schedule a time-slot.
