Annual Profile Faculty Fellows

Annual Profile, formerly known as UA Vitae, offers a convenient, user-friendly venue for faculty to document their achievements in research, teaching, leadership, service, and outreach. Some details, including research grants and teaching evaluations, appear in Annual Profile automatically. Others can be entered manually or imported from online sources such as Google Scholar. Annual Profile is meant to reduce the amount of time and effort faculty spend each year reporting on their accomplishments and increase the accuracy and consistency of their data.

Background - UAVitae Faculty Fellows

The purpose of the UAVitae Faculty Fellows was to gather stakeholder information to provide recommendations to improve UAVitae. This share-governance team prepared and provided a report of their activities (see linked report below).
