UPDATING YOUR FAD INFORMATION - A YEAR-ROUND COMMITMENT

It is crucial for faculty and deans to keep activities in FAD so that up-to-date reports can be generated throughout the semester on an as-needed basis. Academic Affairs and colleges will periodically pull reports from FAD for HLC, ICHE, and other entities. It is important that information is maintained.
