What is a FAR?

The term FAR has been used across the university to reference a suite of 5 major web tools all aimed at collecting  and reporting faculty activity data. Most commonly, faculty refer to FAR as the annual activity reporting process while others think of it as their web profile. This confusion largely occurs due to the varying use of these tools as required by the dean of each college (see usage by college).

FAR is made up of these 5 tools:

A major outcome of having a university-wide system like FAR is to have a master database where colleges and departments can aggregate activity data for use in:

  • Annual performance evaluations and merit increases.
  • Gathering data for college accreditation.
  • A minimum faculty profile across all colleges and departments.
  • A mechanism for pushing faculty profile data to college and department websites.
  • A collaboration tool for finding other faculty.
