Annual Faculty Report (AFR)

The electronic AFR has a new look!

Beginning December 31, 2015, Digital Measures changed the interface for the electronic AFR. While none of the content has changed, some notable updates include:

  • Rapid Reports and Pasteboard are now located on the left-hand side of your screen, instead of at the bottom

  • Run Reports has replaced Run Custom Reports. You may still use Run Reports to select the citation style (APA vs. MLA)

  • Search feature: at the top of your screen, you may now search for key words within your AFR to locate previously entered items

  • Navigational arrows next to each heading allow you to click back to the previous screen, or hold the button for more options (return to main menu)

If you have any questions, please contact AFRSupport@umb.edu.


Every year, faculty report their teaching, research, and service in their Annual Faculty Report (AFR).

AFRs for the academic year September 1, 2015 to August 31, 2016 are due from faculty members to their department chair and/or Department Personnel Committee, according to the procedures of their department by September 15, 2016. Additional dates for this process can be found on the Master Academic Calendar.

LOGIN to Annual Faculty Report (AFR) Use your UMass Boston campus email address (firstname.lastname) and email password.

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.
