2014-2015 Faculty Annual Activity Report (FAAR)

Dear Colleague,

Share Your Success! Let us know about your teaching, research, and service activities by going into Digital Measures’ Activity Insight and completing your FAAR today.

Simply go to www.southernct.edu/faar and log in using your My SCSU username and password.  The first item that appears is the ‘Activities Database -University Main Menu’ page.  Here you will fill in fields on forms that are located beneath select screens. Remember, some fields will self-populate, while others will require some typing or the selection of a response from a drop-down box.  Also, be certain to enter a date (e.g., start/end) into fields that request this type of information. This will be important when it comes time to run Custom reports. 

Please note that there is no need to submit your FAAR; once you have saved the information it is automatically loaded into Activity Insight.  We do require, however, that you ‘select’ the red text at the top of the Activities Screen to indicate that you have filled in all the required fields and screens for sections I-V, for both the fall and spring semesters (2014-2015). The red text reads: Required: Click here to indicate that you’ve completed this year’s FAAR Once you have selected the red text, a screen will appear asking for the academic year and the date completed. Please insert the appropriate academic year (i.e., 2014-2015) in the box provided and then hit ‘Save and Return’.  By completing these steps, you will receive credit for completing your FAAR.

Storing all your information into DM’s Activity Insight does have its benefits. For one, it can serve as a personal, central repository to store all your information from which you can easily generate a CV, a Candidate Information Form, the FAAR or other reports for accreditation and assessment purposes. In addition, the reports created in Activity Insight provide faculty with the opportunity to intentionally focus and reflect on their teaching, research and service activities, and to share their accomplishments with others.

So…share your success now! Complete and fill-out your FAAR today in Digital Measures’ Activity Insight.

For on-going technical assistance, support and training, please contact Maureen Gilbride-Redman, MPA, MS, at gilbriderem1@southernct.edu or 27054.

We thank you very much for your cooperation and assistance! The deadline to complete your FAAR is June 30, 2015.

Sincerely,

Richard L. Riccardi, Sc.D.                                                                                                                             Associate Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness
