The Faculty Report of Professional Activities (FRPA) is designed to serve as an annual inventory of a faculty member's professional activities. This information is used within the department as well as by Academic Affairs and other CU-Boulder offices for compiling campus statistics, identifying outreach and service opportunities, and for annual merit evaluations. Additionally, portions of the FRPA that are marked as “Public Data” become part of a faculty member’s public profile on CU Experts.
All tenure-track faculty and full-time instructors are required to electronically submit FRPA each year as part of the annual merit evaluation process. Others (including research faculty and part-time faculty) are allowed to submit FRPA if they desire. Part-time rostered faculty are required to fill out an FRPA. Some units may require research and part-time faculty to submit FRPA as part of an internal process.
Beginning in 2016, most Scholarly Works and all Creative Works are first entered in CU Boulder Elements (CUBE), and then imported into FRPA.
FRPA reports cover the calendar year, January 1 to December 31, and are usually due February 1 of the following year.
Faculty may change portions of their FRPA that appear in their CU Experts public profiles at any time, and may enter items for the current reporting cycle throughout the year.
