UK Board Of Trustees Considers New Evaluation Process For President

Mar 27, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. - University of Kentucky president Eli Capilouto has outlined an ambitious plan to improve UK’s undergraduate experience and upgrade many of the campus’ outdated facilities. Now UK’s Board of Trustees is considering revamping their framework for evaluating the president’s job performance. 

The new process, if adopted, would expand the review to include 20 to 30 confidential interviews with representatives from the University and Staff Senates, Student Government, elected officials, and others who may work with the president outside the campus setting. The newly crafted evaluation process is intended to give both a broader and more fine-grained impression of the president’s performance. The interviews will focus on university priorities, leadership, Dr. Capilouto’s organization and team, financial management, and several other areas.

The interviews would be reviewed by the board before they consider any bonuses, though Dr. Capilouto has already indicated that, regardless of the results, he plans to turn down any additional money or incentive pay.
