Annual Evaluation and Activites Reporting

Faculty going up for review do not need to complete their annual evaluation, however, we highly recommend completing the Annual Activity Report in Faculty180 to prevent gaps in data. Per the CBA 2017-2019 Article 9.2.1 Annual Activity Report/Review- "The UNAC member shall submit, by September 12 a current CV and Annual Activity Report including a brief self-evaluation narrative unless the UNAC member is undergoing a fourth-year comprehensive review, tenure review, promotion review, or post tenure review."
