All full-time faculty and those part-time faculty who are on multiyear contracts are required to complete the Annual Faculty Activity Report (see sample) and send it, along with an updated curriculum vitae, to the director of their school or conservatory by a specified date each May (listed in the report form). It is optional for other part-time faculty and for faculty members who are on leave for the full academic year. The submission of annual faculty activity reports is common among the college’s peer institutions.

The report format allows faculty to be thoughtful and thorough in describing and evaluating accomplishments and does not ask for information that is readily available from the registrar’s office. This report is used to assist the various committees, directors, and the provost in making decisions about awards, leaves, scheduling, and workload. In addition, the record of the past year’s activities, accomplishments, and service to the college will be useful as you compile your portfolio for tenure, promotion, and various recognitions.

Please note that full-time faculty and part-time faculty who are on multiyear contracts who do not submit their Annual Faculty Activity Report and updated curriculum vitae to their school/conservatory director by the specified date will not be eligible for a faculty support award or a Presidential Discretionary Award (when/if available in the NYS/UUP Agreement) in the next academic year.
