Fill out the Profile Form

The Profile Form in Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR, Faculty180) is used by faculty members to input personal data that tends to remain static over time, such as contact information, degrees, credentials, and work experience. Faculty members can update their profile at any time, if allowed by an institution. Faculty members are also reminded on a regular basis to review their profile to make sure it is current. These reminders are displayed in the Action Items section on the Dashboard. Faculty members can attach transcripts to their degrees in the Degrees section on the Profile Form. The transcripts can then be viewed and deleted as necessary. Administrators can also attach official transcripts to faculty degrees. However, the transcripts are only viewable in limited circumstances as determined by the institution, such as during the use of accreditation reports.


Faculty members cannot delete transcripts that have been attached to a degree by an administrator unless the faculty member has administrative rights. If the institution wants to upload transcripts for the Degrees section on the Profile Form, please contact Interfolio.


Some sections in the Profile Form are filled in automatically based on information in other forms in FAR. For any questions about permissions or abilities to edit this information, please reach out to the FAR administrator at your institution.

An acclaimed pianist, scholar, and expert on the history of African-American music, Eileen Southern is credited with documenting and preserving musical traditions that had been all but ignored by the academic world. At a time when many people thought that jazz and blues was all there was to African-American music, Southern showed that, from the early 1600s, black people in America created a richly diverse body of music ranging from spirituals and folks songs to choral works and symphonies.



What is the Profile Form?

The Profile Form contains mostly static data that does not change that often. Contact information, interests, degrees, work experience, and honors are among the common types of data collected. The Profile Form will not need to be updated as often as the workload form.

To view official transcripts that have been uploaded by your institution, click Profile on the Faculty menu, then click the Degrees section.
