January Faculty Success Updates

The 2022 Annual Activity Report submission process officially opened on January 17, 2023. All tenured and tenure-track faculty members must complete and submit their 2022 Annual Activity Report by March 17, 2023. This year, all benefits-eligible Professional Track faculty (PTK) will be able to participate in 2022 Annual Activity Reporting using the Workflow function within Faculty Success. These PTK faculty members will be included in the annual reporting Workflow process and will receive all of the annual reporting communications, whether or not their units require them to participate. PTK faculty members should consult their department chairs or unit heads with questions about participation requirements and opportunities.

Training Workshops

Weekly training sessions over Zoom are being offered for faculty to prepare for annual activity reporting. The training covers use of the platform, data integrations, tracking activities, time-saving tips, and goals and expectations for entering data. The schedule and registration are on the Faculty Affairs website

Annual Activity Report Submission: What to Expect

Submitting your annual activity report is a straightforward process:

  1. Log in to Faculty Success.
  2. Enter  your Activities on the Faculty Success platform for the calendar year 2022. 
  3. Go to the Workflow section (available in the top red bar) , select the 2022 Annual Activity Review task from the Inbox and review the guidelines for report preparation. You have the option to add a personal statement for the year by attaching a file.
  4. Submit your report and personal statement to your unit approver.

You can learn more about the submission process through this short video, or by reading the Annual Activity Report Submission Guide.

Submitting an annual report without entering your 2022 activities does not meet the University’s annual report requirement for tenured and tenure track faculty. 

A Few Things To Remember

Faculty Success integrates with several citation management systems and supports BibTeX file import. This is an easy way to bring in your publications. University Libraries has a guide on how to use the Publication Import feature in Faculty Success.

Courses taught, student feedback on course experiences, and completed thesis/dissertation committee involvement data will be auto-populated for 2022 by January 27, 2023. 

Bulk Data Import Service

A bulk data import/update service is available.  We can import your activity data from an Excel file into Faculty Success. Templates for ten commonly used activity screens are available on the Faculty Affairs website, as well as template column definitions. If you send your populated Excel file to the Faculty Success team by February 25, 2023, we will be able to load your data into Faculty Success by this year’s deadline.

This service can also apply bulk updates to activity records on a particular screen in Faculty  Success, avoiding record-by-record editing in the system. Contact the Faculty Success team to get an Excel file pre-populated with your data for the associated data screen. You'll send the updated Excel file back to the Faculty Success team and we will load your updates into Faculty Success.
