|Activity Insight is the new on-line database system hosted by a company called DigitalMeasures. It is used for collecting and storing information on the activity of the University’s faculty. It is more commonly known as the faculty activity reporting (FAR) system. The types of activity for which information is collected include teaching, research, grant applications and awards, professional service, professional development activities, service to the University, college, and department, honors and awards, and publications.
The University collects information on faculty activity for a variety of reasons. One reason is associated with merit pay for faculty. A faculty member wishing to be considered for merit pay must submit a faculty activity report, including a merit narrative. The faculty activity report and merit narrative serve as the basis for merit decisions. Another reason for collecting faculty activity information is the ability of the University to promote the work and scholarship of its faculty to both the internal University community and its external publics. One example of this is the yearly President’s Letter highlighting faculty publications.
Deadline for entering 2009 faculty activity information into Activity Insight is Sunday, February 23, 2010.
