Faculty Activities Data: Telling Y(Our) Story

 

Faculty Success (formerly Digital Measures) by Watermark is our faculty activities system. This system enables individual faculty members and the University as a whole to promote and report accomplishments and activities. We initially launched this new tool over the 2019 calendar year with tenured/tenure-track faculty members, and they used it for annual reporting this past spring. In this next phase, all paid faculty are invited to use Faculty Success to report their accomplishments and activities - to tell their story.

A key goal in implementing this system is to bring faculty activity data in from existing campus systems where possible -- to maximize the "enter once, use many times" philosophy. 

As use of the system continues to expand in the coming years, activity data will support promotion, tenure, USM/state reporting, recognition, and accreditation. Where feasible, the system will also integrate with faculty web profiles.
