The RSCA assigned time program enables faculty to concentrate on RSCA production.
The University Library's application process involves two components: 1) scholarly agenda describing RSCA goals, activities, and expected outcomes/products for the coming 5-year period and 2) RSCA metric data based on the past three years of productivity.
For probationary faculty, the agenda constitutes 60% of one's total score. The RSCA metric data constitutes 40% of the total score. For tenured faculty, the agenda constitutes 40% of one's score while the RSCA metric data constitutes 60%.
These materials provide context on how the scholarly agenda will be evaluated. The scholarly agenda has a maximum of 100 points and is evaluated on
The weight of the agenda varies between probationary and tenured faculty (60% and 40%, respectively).
RSCA metric data is another large component of scoring. Faculty RSCA achievement is separated into bands:
|RSCA Metric Tiers - from the 3-Year Average *||Point Value|
* The point value is weighted according to faculty category type (40% for probationary and 60% for tenured).
