The performance appraisal process at Canisius College is designed to encourage open discussion between our managers and employees to review progress, establish priorities and discuss career development opportunities across the campus. The first step in this process is to complete your self-assessment.  As part of the process, we encourage you to consider the following attached tips in preparing your self-assessment.

To access your self-assessment, login to MyCanisius and click Applications – HR Appraisal:

Your new self-assessment is available for you to complete.

Self-assessments should be completed and submitted by June 1.

Managers should complete all Performance Appraisals by July 1. (Additional manager communications will follow).

When the employee submits their self-assessment, it will be available to the manager to utilize in preparing the performance appraisal.

  • Self-assessments are designed to facilitate the performance discussion.  An employee will complete the appropriate form and it will be forwarded to the manager.
  • The manager will complete the performance appraisal and then schedule a meeting to review the details and finalize goals for the next year. Once completed, the manager will then submit the appraisal.
  • The employee will receive the final document and add comments and sign to acknowledge the appraisal was received and reviewed.
  • The appraisal will be available to view at the Vice President level.
