Faculty Activity Reports

All SEAS ladder and multi-year instructional faculty must submit an annual Faculty Activity Report (FAR).  The FAR process informs salary changes and allows chairs and SEAS Steering to make recommendations based on your accomplishments.  To be considered for a salary increase, you must submit an up-to-date FAR and CV.

Deadline to Submit FAR:  January 20, 2023

*Note: Please do not delete any documents from previous years’ FAR submissions. Also, please make sure that the proper Document Category is assigned for each document: Faculty Activity Report and Curriculum Vitae.

FAR content

In your FAR (typically not more than 500 words), please list or describe your activities and accomplishments for the calendar year 2022.  Some of the information for the annual activity report—your appointment history, courses taught (with enrollments), certain University committees, leave history, and sponsored research (as applicable) —comes directly from university records. This information, together with your curriculum vitae and narrative statement, will be available to your department chair and to the SEAS Dean’s Office to guide the annual review process.

SEAS will use the FAR form based on recommendations by the 2019 FAS Faculty Activity Committee. A copy of their report can be found here.

Detailed guidance (Ladder Faculty)

  • When completing the “noteworthy accomplishments” section, please make sure that you highlight those aspects of teaching, research, and service from calendar year 2022 that represent your major achievements of that year.
  • Publications that have a copyright date and/or publication date of 2022 should be included in your FAR. If a scholarly piece was made available electronically by a journal or a publisher in 2022 before it was scheduled to appear in print (e.g., “e-pub ahead of print”), you may list it on the 2022 FAR. However, a scholarly accomplishment should be highlighted in only one year’s FAR.
  • Works that have not been published in their final form electronically or in print (e.g., a book manuscript accepted by a publisher but with the book not yet publicly available) will be recognized in the year in which they are copyrighted and/or published.
  • You may also wish to describe activities that may not be reflected in our system-generated records or are not readily apparent in your curriculum vitae. This may include details on mentoring of colleagues (faculty and post-doctoral fellows); student advising and mentoring, both formal and informal; research and publications in process; guest lectures and conferences within and outside Yale; and service – both formal and informal – to the University, your profession, and your community.
  • We recognize that many faculty have continued to face circumstances that have affected their research and teaching. Please feel free to describe briefly particular challenges that you have faced as the result of the COVID-19 crisis.
