University Research Data Management Policy



The WORKS Database


Works is an online faculty activity reporting system designed to make it easier for faculty to maintain and complete an accurate record of ongoing activities and accomplishments (teaching, research, service, public and international engagement) that can be used to produce faculty activity reports as well as bio-sketches, accreditation reports, web site bios, and standardized University promotion and tenure CVs.


The WORKS database system was piloted last fall in the College of Design, and a number of faculty have already been using the system. NOTE that use of the WORKS will be required starting this coming year for faculty performance reviews. You may find more information from previous CDes workshops by clicking here or by visiting the WORKS website. Additionally, two more workshops will be offered in late August. Please watch your email for more information.
