Keeping Your Records Updated
What is expected of BYU faculty?
Minimum requirement: Record all your professional activities needed for the Annual Faculty Stewardship Interview in Faculty Profile by the deadline set by the college and complete all other tasks requires by your department and/or college.
Optional: Record other activities in Faculty Profile for your use in the Rank & Status process or your vita or other reports in the future.
Recommended Best Practices for Keeping Data Updated
- Open your CV and make sure every item in your CV is in your profile.
- Look at each of the "screens" in Faculty Profile and think whether you have any professional activities in that area that could be added.
- To keep your profile updated, create a physical (and/or digital) folder labeled "Add to Faculty Profile and CV" where you can add a note or put materials related to each professional activity that eventually needs to go into Faculty Profile and your CV. Include at least as much information as needed in Faculty Profile (titles, dates, people involved, citations, etc.).
- Add a reoccurring date to your calendar to remind you to update Faculty Profile once a month, quarter, or semester. When the date arrives, record all of the activities you have saved in the folder(s) in Faculty Profile.
What if I’m not sure which screen to use in Faculty Profile?
When you click on the name of a screen, you’ll go to the “summary screen” for that area. Typically, there is some red text at the top of the summary screen which describes the type of activities which should be recorded on that screen. You can also find information about each screen here: Faculty Profile Screens.
Keys to success: Be consistent, accurate, and complete.
