  • FAR & Effort – Graduate Program Director activity/service should be included on the employee’s Faculty Assignment Report (FAR) and Effort Report. Official UF duties should be reported each semester on the Faculty Assignment Report (duties being “assigned” before each term begins) and Effort Report (what is reported as “actual” effort after each term has ended) – Only what is reported via these processes should be included in a faculty member’s annual evaluation.
