What is FAD?
Faculty Activity Database LOG IN (FAD) is an online faculty activity reporting system designed to make it easier for faculty to maintain and complete an accurate record of ongoing activities and accomplishments (teaching, research, service, public and international engagement) that can be used to produce faculty activity reports as well as bio-sketches, accreditation reports, web site bios, and standardized University promotion and tenure CVs.
How does FAD benefit users?
FAD allows users to enter activity information once and use it for multiple purposes. For example, a user would enter a conference presentation only once and that information can be included in different types of reports such as a CV, annual activity report, accreditation report, bio sketch, or department web site bio. Users can enter information throughout the year and decide what information they wish to share.
