Performance Evaluations


Board Policy 4.9 requires all employees to have a performance evaluation once per year, thus as a Minnesota State Mankato employee, you are entitled to an annual performance evaluation or review. The purpose of this is to understand what you are doing well, what you need to improve (if anything), and to discuss your professional development.

Supervisor Resources

If you are a supervisor, please be aware of the requirement for and the importance of performance evaluations. It provides one of many possible ways to ensure there is open communication between you and those you supervise. There are numerous resources available on this topic including information on the Human Resources web site in the Supervisor's Tool Kit
