Your annual activity report serves as the best mechanism to keep your files up-to-date in the Dean of Faculty’s Office and to highlight your recent achievements. In addition, this report informs the merit raise process; only faculty who submit a report will be eligible for a merit raise that fiscal year. A merit raise recognizes extraordinary performance in a single year or a cumulative record of strong performance. It is determined by the Dean of Faculty in consultation with the Associate Deans of Faculty, Provost and President and is currently allocated as a modest increase to base pay.
An annual activity report should describe your noteworthy achievements, contributions, or concerns in the areas of teaching, scholarship, and service during the past calendar year. You are welcome to submit a CV with highlighted key recent activities, and/or to submit a short narrative report.
Your narrative report should answer the following question: Which contributions/achievements in the areas of teaching, scholarship/creative work, and service are you most proud of, and why?
The narrative report might also focus on the aspects of your work during the past calendar year that you most want to highlight for us.
- In the area of scholarship and creative work, that might include recent publications, exhibitions, or performances; progress towards completing an ongoing project; awards, prizes, grants or fellowships; or the circulation and recognition of your work in scholarly and public venues.
- In the area of teaching, that might include curricular innovation and development; the use of inclusive pedagogies; or mentoring, advising, or supporting students in various ways.
- In the area of service, in addition to the visible categories of service, that might include contributions to building an inclusive community; and less visible ways that you have contributed to your academic unit, a college committee, student success and well-being, a professional organization, or the larger community.
Finally, if there are colleagues at Williams who have been particularly helpful to you in developing your teaching and/or scholarship this year, please do let us know.
