Annual Faculty Report (AFR)
Every year, faculty report their teaching, research, and service in their Annual Faculty Report (AFR). AFRs for the academic year September 1, 2017 to August 31, 2018 are due from faculty members to their department chair and/or department personnel committee, according to the procedures of their department by Thursday, September 13, 2018. Additional dates for this process can be found on the Master Academic Calendar.

The Annual Faculty Report (AFR) instrument developed by Digital Measures gives faculty and staff the ability to store, manage, update, and run reports, including courses taught, teaching methods, research, grants, intellectual contributions and creative activities, in a secure, online environment.
- A new user interface for the electronic Annual Faculty Report (AFR) website launched June 29, 2018. This new interface features a number of enhancements designed for a more user-friendly and intuitive experience, and allows for easier use with a smartphone or tablet.
- We have added a Research Interests field on the Personal and Contact Information section of your AFR Database. This field is optional and will not appear on your AFR when you generate your report. The purpose of this new field is to gather information that will be useful for research collaboration, grant-funding opportunities, and media inquiries. If you have any questions, please contact AFRSupport@umb.edu. (Added December 2017)
One-on-one training is available on an individual basis by emailing AFRSupport@umb.edu.
