Use Emulate User Tool

Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR, Faculty 180) allows administrators to emulate faculty and staff members to access information or to view FAR from their perspective. This is especially helpful for assisting faculty/staff members who have questions about using FAR.


Please note that emulation in FAR does not give access to Review, Promotion & Tenure (RPT).
