Message from Dr. Laura Perry Johnson

Elements Administrative Liaison for CAES

CAES Faculty – as you have heard many times, the current UGA Faculty Reporting (FAR) System will be ending in June 2015. It will be replaced by the new Elements Reporting System and all departmental and unit faculty will be required to use this new system. County faculty will continue to use GA Counts for the time being. Here is a link to the recent Columns’ article on this topic:

If you want to download a personal copy of your FAR data, you may do so until June 14, 2015 by 5:00 pm. FAR will be shut down and log-in capability turned off on June 15, 2015.The instructions on downloading FAR data is now available on the Elements website-- Training and Support section or you can view here: Instructions on how to download a personal copy of FAR data

I am the Administrative Liaison for our College and Marcie Simpson and Sunshine Jordan are our College’s support for this project. We will be sending more info to you on this subject. The website is being updated all the time. You should bookmark this site for future reference.
