Preparing for the Annual Review
Each year, full-time faculty are interviewed by their department chair or director as part of the annual review process. The interview typically takes place in January or February. Before the interview, chairs use Faculty Profile to print an “Annual Activity Report” for each faculty member. This report contains the following information the faculty member has entered into Faculty Profile:
- A list of the faculty member's professional activities during the previous year.
- A report on the Conflict of Interest and Conflict of Time Commitment form.
- A report of progress made on the goals set in the previous year.
- Faculty development goals for the new year.
In order for the Annual Activity Report to be accurate, faculty should update their records in Faculty Profile by the deadline established by the College.
How to use Faculty Profile to prepare for the annual review:
- Log in to Faculty Profile.
- Once you have logged in, note that the screens in Faculty Profile are organized into the following groups: General Information, Teaching, Scholarship, Citizenship, and Annual Review.
- Record each of your professional activities for the past year on the appropriate Faculty Profile screens (General, Teaching, Scholarship, and Citizenship). (Each of these screens contains some basic instructions for what goes into that screen, but for more help in understanding what data should be entered into which screen, see: Faculty Profile Screens.)
- Update the soft copy of your CV so it can be uploaded into Faculty Profile. Under General Information, click on the Personal and Contact Information screen and note that Section I is for your vita. Upload your vita by clicking on the button in that area.
- Last, complete the two screens that are listed under the last section, Annual Review: (1) Conflict of Interest and Conflict of Time Commitment screen and (2) Annual Review Preparation and Documents Archive screen.
