The Professional Activity Capture Tool (PACT), provided through Digital Measures, is the faculty activity reporting platform which aggregates all relevant information into one portal, produces reports and faculty rosters, and creates an online faculty directory.

Because we know our faculty are extremely busy, we have invested in a system that eliminates the countless requests for information regarding your teaching, research, and other service activities. By simply entering information into the system once, PACT will store valuable data such as your CV, NIH and NSF biosketches, and documents for promotion and tenure, which will in turn produce ready-made reports for these and many more purposes, thus maximizing its impact. Other practical uses for the system include having: 

  • A searchable community engagement website
  • A searchable portal related to research and creative activity
  • The ability to feed the information to faculty webpage bios directly from PACT
  • Specialized accreditation reports (AACSB, CAEP, etc.)
  • Annual unit and program review reports 

Our administrators can also have an efficient, centralized, and easy-to-navigate source for generating reports for accreditation, institutional research surveys, personnel review procedures, and more. With PACT, administrators are more aware of their users’ activities and better positioned to publicize their accomplishments because of this awareness.

As of 12/10/2019 - Digital Measures has made some screen updates. The majority of these changes are cosmetic; however, they have added a drag-and-drop feature for files, rich text formatting for text boxes (which will carry through to reports as well), and text wrap for drop down options.
