Faculty Activity Reporting System

Welcome to FARS, Western Michigan University's newly implemented Faculty Activity Reporting System. FARS is an electronic vehicle for faculty portfolio management and reporting. It offers a convenient, user-friendly system for faculty to document their achievements in teaching, research, creative activities, and services. The data generated by the system are crucial for strategic planning and decision making in the future.


The 2020-21 Professional Activities Reports (PAR) are due on Oct. 22, 2021. This requirement is applied to full-time board-appointed ranked faculty.
