We are rewarded on both qualitative and quantitative data. Our KPIs are all numbers based. If the numbers are low, you can face being put on a warning, Performance Improvement Plan, or terminated from the University. It can be a challenge to meet the numbers. Depending on your position, you are held responsible if a student drops, does not complete the courses each term, does not like the university, or has a bad experience with another department, or is not very satisfied with the university.
