Faculty Activity Report (FAR)
Information regarding the 2013 - 2014 Faculty Activity Report (FAR)
The 2013-14 online Faculty Activity Report is available at: https://utdirect.utexas.edu/apps/provost/far/.
Faculty members should first edit, categorize, and certify their publications within the Publications Database at https://utdirect.utexas.edu/apps/provost/faculty_pubs/. Uncategorized publications will cause errors within the FAR. Faculty members will not be able to certify and submit their FAR until their publications have been certified.
All tenured and tenure-track faculty members, and all non-tenure track faculty members who are assigned at 50% or greater in a faculty position, are responsible for completing a Faculty Activity Report (FAR) of their academic and professional activities each year. Reports for 2013-14 should be prepared and submitted to the department chair/director or, in a non-departmentalized college/school, the dean, on or before October 1, 2014 unless a different date has been determined and communicated by and individual’s college/school.
The report is an essential component of the annual merit review, the third-year review of tenure-track faculty, promotion review (all ranks) and periodic review of tenured faculty.
Deans and department chairs can access their faculty members’ Faculty Activity Reports through the FAR Admin page at https://utdirect.utexas.edu/apps/provost/far_admin/. Access for other administrators can be requested via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions and comments can be sent using the link at the bottom of the Faculty Activity Report: email@example.com.
