U-CV – What’s New or Changed?

University of Utah Enterprise CV System – UCV

The University CV system (UCV) replaces the MBM CV tool and FAR (Faculty Activity Report) databases. This list is not meant to be a comprehensive view of every change (there have been so many!), but a highlight to help users get familiar with the system quickly.

Please contact University Faculty Information & Support (UFIS) via instant chat or by the details below if you have any questions.
