Faculty Resources

AAP faculty have a variety of resources available to them to assist in the completion of their administrative and pedagogical responsibilities. There are resources available in the college and throughout the university to assist with issues such as classroom support, human resources, budgeting, and reporting.

Annual Report for Tenured, Tenure-track, and Multi-year Appointees

Tenured, tenure-track, and multi-year appointees are required to complete an annual report. Details are emailed in the fall semester of each year. The annual reporting system, Activity Insight, is available via the link below; a NetID and password are required. FAQs and a user manual are also available. For further assistance, please contact the AAP Office of Management Information and Reporting.

Blackboard, IT Solutions, and Other Services

The university uses Blackboard to help faculty manage their class work, give students access to class information, and enable the submission of student work for evaluation and discussion. Faculty members should complete the Blackboard request and refer to the AAP-approved banners for Blackboard use before completing setup. For assistance with Blackboard, please contact the Academic Technology Center at (607) 255-9760. The AAP registrar may also be of assistance; email or call (607) 255-3274. Please note that Blackboard can be set up either manually or with an automatic link to the student records system; there are potential advantages and disadvantages to both options, so please review that information carefully before setting up a class.

AAP has resources available to assist with information technology needs for both faculty offices and classrooms. Read more about IT Solutions, or contact them via email or phone at (607) 255-0265.

To use the Material Practice Facilities for studio or other classes, including the Rand fabrication shop and the print media and darkroom facilities, email Frank Parish or call (607) 255-6066. 

For questions regarding class budgets, appointments, pay checks, or benefits, email the AAP Business Service Center (BSC) located at 140 Sibley Hall, or call (607) 255-8866 and a representative for the appropriate department will provide assistance. Please see the BSC page for a list of available forms and contacts.
