FAS Benefits to Faculty Users

FAS eliminates periodic, recurring requests for information on users’ teaching, research, and service activities. Reports for personnel review procedures, such as annual faculty assessment, promotion and tenure, or reports for other stakeholders, such as faculty rosters and vita, can all be generated once activity data have been entered in FAS. It provides a single convenient place for users to maintain their activity data, and can be accessed easily to generate these reports. The main takeaway for faculty is that FAS allows its users to enter information one time and use it many times after that, making it an efficient and effective way to store your work and activities.
