Faculty Affairs and Records Mission Statement

The mission of the Faculty Affairs and Records Office (FAR) is to provide a range of services and support to faculty, campus administrators, and staff on the implementation of campus policies and procedures for the evaluation of academic employees. It is our goal to administer academic employment processes effectively and efficiently and to serve as a resource for faculty and academic student employees throughout their Cal State Fullerton careers. FAR coordinates the following academic employee processes: Retention, Tenure, and Promotion (RTP); Temporary Faculty (Lecturer) Evaluations; Post-Tenure Review; Range Elevation; Student Opinion Questionnaires (SOQs); Sabbatical Leaves; and Campus-wide orientations for Academic Student Employees (TAs, GAs, ISAs). FAR is the official repository for documents and correspondence concerning full-time faculty, and has the responsibility for retaining documentation pertaining to employment, reappointment, tenure, promotion, and the evaluation of faculty performance.

FAR also works in collaboration with the Faculty Development Center and HRDI to provide faculty with support for successful academic careers.
