His best-selling book Developing a Comprehensive Faculty Evaluation System now in its second edition, is widely used in colleges and universities in designing faculty evaluation programs. Dr. Arreola is on the faculty of The University of Tennessee Health Science Center where he has also held several administrative positions including Chairman of the Department of Education and Director of Institutional Research, Assessment and Planning. In addition Dr. Arreola has served on the staff of the University of Tennessee Institute for Leadership Effectiveness as one of only 15 faculty selected from throughout the University’s 5-campus system to serve as a facilitator in the leadership training of over 300 academic administrators. For the last 17 years Dr. Arreola has conducted national workshops on faculty evaluation for thousands of faculty and administrators from over 500 colleges throughout the world. He has been invited to make numerous keynote addresses on the topics of assessing faculty performance, evaluating and enhancing teaching, the use of technology in teaching, and identifying, measuring, and developing he skill set components of teaching excellence. For the last two years Dr. Arreola has been a featured presenter on faculty evaluation in Magna Publication’s Audio Conference series. In 2004 Dr. Arreola received the McKeachie Career Achievement Award from the American Educational Research Association’s Special Interest Group on Faculty Teaching, Evaluation, and Development. In addition, in 2005 his work on defining the professoriate as a ‘meta-profession’ and identifying the subordinate skill sets of faculty work was recognized by the American Educational Research Association which awarded him its prestigious Relating Research to Practice Award.
