PAR 2018 - 2021: Letter from Provost Urban

Dear Colleagues,

We are writing to inform you that the 2018-2021 PAR process is on schedule for submission in January 2022.

As a reminder, we delayed the PAR process during the pandemic, and are now back on track with the 2018-2021 PAR schedule to incorporate four years of data--2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021. PAR remained open throughout 2020 and 2021 for faculty to input scholarly contributions.

Within each of the Research, Teaching, and Service areas, there is now a free-form text box that can be used to include any extraordinary efforts or accomplishments related to the pandemic. The text box is titled, Extraordinary Efforts / Accomplishments Relating to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Below is the schedule for the 2018-2021 PAR:

  • PAR remains open, and faculty should continue to input their scholarly contributions;
  • January 10, 2022 - PAR submit button active and available;
  • January 17, 2022 - faculty final deadline to submit PAR to department chair;
  • February 7, 2022 - department chair deadline to submit PAR to dean;
  • March 7, 2022 - dean deadline for submitting PAR reviews.

If you have questions related to the initiation of your PAR or the PAR process, please contact your College Level Administrator or email
