"PCATS = Enter once, use indefinitely"
Faculty will be able to
Create a monthly report with a standard template (No more manual reporting!)
Create an annual accomplishments report for annual evaluation
Create a full CV (if all professional accomplishments are entered)
Create an NIH and NSF biosketch in the recognized standardized format
Create customized reports on grants, contracts, intellectual contributions, professional development and more.
Department heads/School director and the associate dean for academic affairs may create group aggregated reports in response to inquiries of progress on the strategic plan.
This system replaces your monthly report. By entering your information in Activity Insight, a report can be generated on your behalf.
Activities and Accomplishments
Click on the link below to see a map of the categories and information that may be entered in the system. The faculty member (or their designee) will enter most of their information. However, some information will be uploaded on behalf of the faculty member including course information in the For-credit courses screen (information from Registrar’s office) as well as contracts, fellowships, grants and sponsored research in the Contracts, Fellowships, Grants and Sponsored Research screen (information from Vice President for Research). (Of course, faculty may enter this information by hand if preferred.)
If a designee is entering information, we strongly suggest that faculty review the entries for accuracy.
