Academic and Professional Record (APR)

Promoting Faculty Excellence 

The Academic and Professional Record (APR) promotes faculty excellence, achievement, collaboration, and engagement by maintaining a comprehensive electronic portfolio of faculty academic and professional activities. 

Background

The Academic and Professional Record (APR) project is a collaborative initiative of the Office of the Provost, ITS-Administrative Information Services, and the University colleges to capture and tell the story of faculty excellence on campus.  The APR is a web-based faculty activities database that maintains up-to-date records of traditional curriculum vitae information (e.g., teaching, research, service), as well as information about additional professional accomplishments and interests. APR enables efficient collecting, aggregating, and reporting on faculty accomplishments by individual faculty members, departments, colleges, and central offices. UI contracts with an external vendor, Digital Measures, to provide this service to campus. Digital Measures is a national leader in academic information management and its software, Activity Insight, has been implemented on 60% of the 500 largest U.S. campuses of higher education as their faculty activity reporting solution.   

The APR Project Goals  

Our goal in the Carver College of Medicine (CCOM) is to enter information from the faculty CV into the database. Please see a complete list of project goals and related projects.
