All UNH Faculty members should submit their annual reports via Blackboard using the Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR) system. To access FAR, click the link in the "UNH-Faculty Activity Reporting" box, which should be directly beneath "My Blackboard Courses."
Once you have accessed the FAR system, enter data by clicking on "Manage Your Activities" on the side navigation bar. It is especially important to enter dates for accurate reporting. Note that some of the fields will already be populated with data provided by UNH. Once you have entered information, you can create your annual report by selecting "Run Custom Reports" on the side navigation bar and choosing "Annual Faculty Activity Report (COLA)" (1). Please be sure to use the COLA report, which has been designed to suit our specific needs, not the generic report provided by Digital Measures. You must also specify the date range (2), and select the output (3) in Microsoft Word or Adobe pdf format.

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of everyone filling out the FAR report. We teach, but we also do so much more. To strengthen our hand in negotiating workload and FTE (100% time) with the administration, we need an official record of what every lecturer faculty member does (e.g. mentoring students, supervising research projects, serving on committees, etc.). FAR can be accessed via Blackboard: http://www.unh.edu/institutional-research/far
