Virginia Tech is implementing an electronic faculty activity reporting system to automate the production of annual faculty activity reports. Once the system is fully implemented, it can also be used to produce promotion and tenure dossiers and CVs for individual faculty members as well as department, college, and university level reports. Pilot departments in six colleges tested the system in the 2011-2012 academic year. The College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences will use the system for reporting in 2012-2013.
For more information, contact Peggy Layne.
Information can be entered once and used to produce a variety of reports. Individual faculty members can produce an annual report, a promotion and tenure dossier, or a vita, for example. Department heads, deans, and administrators can produce reports about the activities of faculty in their unit, including for accreditation purposes.
Department heads and their designees will have access to data on faculty in their department. Likewise, deans and their designees will have access to data on faculty in their college, and the provost will have access to data on all instructional faculty.
EFARS guides for faculty are available on the web to show you where to enter data for the various sections of your FAR.
No, you only need to report the same data that you have included on your FAR in the past.
