Faculty Profile System Data Standardization Process

On-going data standardization continues as we prepare to implement a new software solution to accommodate faculty activity reporting. Numerous changes have been made including a dropdown selector to select the year. Please review your profile carefully with particular attention to the critical issues listed here.
