Evaluation of Central Administrators (EOCA)

Each year, the Committee for Evaluation of Central Administrators (EOCA) compiles information about two central administrators through research and interviews. It is an upward evaluation by faculty of key administrators. The evaluation is designed to provide feedback to the President and Executive Vice President and Provost on the effectiveness and role of both the office and the individual.
