Instructions to Art Faculty for Completing the Outline of Faculty Data
(OFD)

How to use this document:

. Insure that the Word feature "Comments" is on.
There are instructions and tips within the document to help you.
How you access Comments depends on the version of Word that you
have.

. Throughout this template formatted, placeholder text in NON-bold
parentheses is to be replaced with the required information.
Just swipe (select) the placeholder text, including the
parentheses, and type in your content.
Be careful not to swipe anything beyond the parentheses or you
may adversely affect the formatting.
If you are copying and pasting type from another document, or from
within the OFD, a clipboard icon will appear near where you have
pasted. Click on the icon and select "Match Destination
Formatting" to apply the correct formatting.
Anything that is outside of parentheses is to be left as is,
and answered where required.
When a category does not apply to you type N/A.
Delete unused placeholder text.
When entering data in tables, if you require additional rows for
more entries select the existing last row and then select from the
main menu: Table>Insert>Rows Below.

. Whenever possible use columned lists or bulleted lists. Fewer pages in
the OFD are preferable to more pages, so save space when possible.
Use rhetorical, descriptive text only when required. However, the
contents of columned-lists or bulleted-lists may also include more
than just the facts; text describing the listed item may be helpful.
In categories that might use either, or both, lists and rhetorical
text, a placeholder version of both has been provided.
The version of placeholder text in a given category is what is the
most likely version required. If, however, you require something
different, feel free to copy and paste another version of
placeholder text.
Not all categories require a separate column of dates or a column
just for international, national, or regional. These columned-lists
are most appropriate for certain categories under research and
service, which is why you won't find them elsewhere.

. You do NOT enter anything in the Teaching sub-category, "Teaching as
Evaluated by Students and Peers".
Copies of your teaching evaluations will be added to your folder by
the art office.

. Place published reviews of YOUR work in the Research sub-category,
"Honors Received and Recognition for Research, Scholarship, Creative
Activity:".
Rather than follow the prior departmental practice of creating a new
and additional category titled "Bibliography", just include reviews,
acknowledgments, or mention of your research or creative activity in
the existing category "Honors Received and Recognition for Research,
Scholarship, Creative Activity".
