Annual Reviews in MyVita (video)

University of Missouri System has moved all academic employee evaluations to the myVITA system. With this process, we are aligning our faculty job descriptions, evaluations, and promotion criteria around the three pillars of work of Extension faculty: to educate, create, and connect.

  • myExtension — myVITA does NOT replace the myExtension system; myExtension is one data source for myVITA. You will not be asked to enter your program data twice. Data reported in myExtension will be uploaded in myVITA.
  • ePerformance — Evaluation tool for staff positions.
  • Review period — The review period in myVITA is based on the calendar year. Evaluation steps begin in January for the previous year with evaluation discussions completed in the spring. See information and resources below for details on steps and timeline.
