What is FAR?


The term FAR has been used across the university to reference a suite of 5 primary web tools all aimed at collecting and reporting faculty activity data. Most commonly, a faculty member refers to the FAR as the annual activity reporting process, while others think of it as their web profile.

This confusion is mostly due to the different usage of these tools, as required by the Dean of each college (see usage by the college).

FAR is made up of these five tools:

A significant 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 members.
