Report on Faculty Activity, Administration, and Accreditation

Various activity, administrative, and accreditation reports can be generated within Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR, Faculty180) for information purposes, based upon a user's permissions. For example, a provost might have permission to access all reports at the university level and below, while deans might only have access to reports for their colleges. Once a report has been generated, it can be exported to Microsoft Word/Excel format or Adobe PDF. Reports can also be printed on a standard printer.


There are two basic components to running reports. Selecting the faculty and selecting the data to include in the report. Additional options may be available, depending on the type of data in the report.


Check out this article on how to Request LCME Accreditation Reporting for more information.
