The UA Vitae system will take some time to get started, but the time that faculty invest will enable departments, colleges, and the University to document the broader impact of faculty contributions. The reviews of faculty will be governed by established policies, including the college oversight provisions that long been in place. Everyone involved in this process recognizes that annual assessments and some faculty activity data are sensitive and need to be managed appropriately. To preserve established annual review practices and the integrity of faculty data, faculty will be consulted on activities that they do not wish to have shared before university directories or other resources are developed. If you have questions about how the UA Vitae System will be used for annual reviews, please visit the FAQs page: http://uavitae.arizona.edu/ua-vitae-faq
