Click here to Access myVITA
myVITA is a web-based faculty activity reporting system that allows faculty members at all UM System campuses to report on their research, teaching, service, scholarship and creative works.
All tenured, tenure-track, and ranked non-tenure-track are evaluated in myVITA. Below are instructions for being evaluated in myVITA. Different guidelines and forms may be utilized by different colleges.
Training resources are available below and on the UM System myVITA website.
Annual Evaluation Process (for faculty)
The first step is for faculty to review and enter information into the Profile and Activities section of myVITA for the period for which they are being evaluated. This time period may also differ by college. Please see the table under “Timing and Sample Forms” for timelines and windows for which faculty will be evaluated for annual review. As the annual review processes are confirmed for each school or college, the information will be added to the interactive tool below.
The evaluator (dean/chair/director) will view the annual activities for the faculty member’s previous calendar year in the MU Activity Report. The MU Activity Report pulls the information that is available in the Profile and Activities sections of myVITA. The document below provides directions on how to run an MU Activity Report for the previous calendar year and a guide for updating activities. A faculty member should review this report and 1) update information that should no longer be included and 2) add information that is not yet in myVITA.
Please be sure to save any work you have done before moving to a new activity or closing out of myVITA. The SAVE button is at the bottom of activity records, self-report forms, and all sections where faculty can update data in myVITA. Be sure to save at least once an hour or data may be lost.
Annual Evaluation Process (for evaluators)
The following document will walk chairs, deans, and directors through the process they will use to manage evaluations.
Timing and Sample Forms
Each school or college has similar steps for the annual evaluation but may use different forms. For the timelines and help documents with samples of the forms for each step, select your college below. The names of the steps link to documents that walk you through each step.
Updates for 2021-22
- Graduate Students have been added
- Addition of a Teaching Self Reflection Component: Beginning with annual reviews filled out in Spring 2022, and per direction from the Provost’s office, it is recommended that all faculty annually complete a self reflection for a course that they taught in that time period. There are some units where, if faculty are not teaching, this is not applicable. Faculty should use this link https://missouri.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_02n7YR4Rer93l6C to access the self reflection document. Upon completing the form, faculty should download it and attach it to the corresponding course in the activities section. Please name the file “last name_course dept and number_selfreflection.
