Each department uses the Faculty Activities Report for annual reviews. Keep in mind that each department may follow a slightly different format and require additional information. Make sure you ask a colleague for a copy of his/her report so you can use it as a guideline for annual reviews, which are due in May each year. Also, take time to talk with your department Chair about the department's annual review process and expectations. A template for the Faculty Activities report is available under the Faculty Federation web site.
An important point to remember is that annual reviews are summative reports; in other words, you are reporting about what you did during the year. Your contract renewal and tenure review dossiers are where you extensively document your accomplishments and include a narrative explaining your contributions in the areas of teaching, research, and service.
**Please read Contract Article VII, Personnel Recommendations (pp. 53-70). Your contract is your guiding document.
Tip: Before submitting your annual review or file, provide your Faculty Evaluation Committee (FEC) presenter with information about you, such as some sample articles to read in advance. Ask him/her if s/he has questions that you can answer. The more prepared your presenter is, the better your review can go.
Faculty Activity Report Examples
Some recently hired faculty have graciously provided copies of their Faculty Activity Reports for new faculty to review. As you examine the examples, please remember that each department may have different formats (see note above).
