Rutgers University's board has revised its process for evaluation of its president, currently Richard McCormick, The Star-Ledger reported. Until now, McCormick has prepared a 20-page self-assessment for the board each year, followed by a meeting with board members to discuss his assessment, and theirs. Going forward, reflecting the current focus in higher education on using metrics, the evaluation will be based on specific measures related to graduation rates, research grants, the quality of the incoming undergraduate class and other factors that relate to the university's quality.
