Annual Faculty Report and Evaluation

Each year members of the faculty complete the Annual Faculty Report and Evaluation of Professional Activities form ( AFR ), which chronicles faculty accomplishments and contributions across the full range of teaching; research, scholarly, creative, and professional activities; and service and outreach activities.  The AFR provides the official record on which many faculty personnel decisions (such as merit pay) are based, and it is vital to faculty development, both as an opportunity for self-reflection and as a basis for discussion among departmental and other colleagues. It also represents a useful opportunity to inform the society we serve of our accomplishments, so it is in our interest to be sure that what we do is fully and fairly reported.
