There are several reports relating to a faculty member’s assignment and performance completed by faculty in consultation with their department chair.  These include Faculty Activity Reports, Faculty Assignment Forms, Professional Development Plans, and Annual Professional Development Reports.

Faculty Activity Report (FAR)

A FAR is a report that shows an individual faculty member's assignments for a given semester or specified period.

All full-time personnel on a faculty line, including faculty with a visiting appointment and Instructors, must fill out a FAR at least two weeks prior to the end of each semester. Check with your Department Secretary.

Faculty Assignment Form (FAF)

Faculty Assignment Forms are produced on an annual basis after consultation between the faculty member and his or her supervisor.

The supervisor in collaboration with the employee will be free to modify the percentages during any term if the needs of the academic unit change. If the assignments change by 5% or more, the form will be modified, initialed and a copy will be given to the faculty member. A copy of the signed Faculty Assignment Form is to be maintained by the supervisor and the faculty member as a guide for completion of the Faculty Activity Report submitted at the end of each semester/term.

Professional Development Plan (PDP)

The Professional Development Plan (PDP) is prepared by faculty in consultation with their supervisor at the start of each academic year to describe the faculty member’s objectives for the year.  The PDP is described in the FPED.

The Annual Professional Development Report (APDR) is a report that is prepared by the faculty in March stating how they met the goals they stated on their previous Professional Development Plan (PDP).
