In accordance with Northeastern Illinois University Law (ILCS 680/25-190) Executive Accountability, the Board must complete an annual performance review of the president and any chancellors of the University. Such annual performance review must be considered when the Board contemplates a bonus, incentive-based compensation, raise, or severance agreement for the president or all chancellors of the University. (Source: P.A. 99-694, eff. 1/1/17.)

The President’s annual review is posted on the Board Meeting Materials page with the materials from the meeting at which the evaluation was completed.
