Welcome to the Faculty PRO Website
This website contains instructions on how to work in Faculty PRO and information on the PRO project history. The PRO system is designed for University of Kansas faculty to manage professional information on teaching, research, and service; to generate curriculum vitae, to prepare annual reports, to prepare promotion and tenure candidate CV documents and other university forms or applications; and to maintain faculty webpages and expand collaboration.
Please see below for instructions on working in PRO and how to run reports (such as CVs, promotion and tenure reports, etc.). You can also access the 2016-17 Quick Reference Card.

There are two ways to generate reports (such as Promotion and Tenure reports or Annual Reviews) in PRO: Run Reports and Rapid Reports. Run Reports allows you choose the citation style of the report, however you must leave the activities screen to do so. Rapid Reports allows you to generate a report without leaving the screen you’re currently on, but formats reports in APA style only.
How-To: Run Reports
How-To: Rapid Reports
There are many types of reports and many of them are department- or school-specific. To generate a complete report that incorporates all of your records, select a report type that includes "comprehensive" in the name.
Promotion and Tenure and Progress Toward Tenure Review reports are formatted to match the template established by the Provost's Office. Please note however that reports generated by PRO are only drafts and you should review them closely to ensure proper formatting.For Annual Reports or Annual Reviews, your department, school, or unit should instruct you on which format to select. For school-specific guidelines on how PRO drafts your annual report, please visit the Drafting Your Annual Report page.
To see what PRO pulls to your faculty webpage, you can also run a Web Page Information Report. To learn more about using PRO on your faculty webpage, click here.
If you seek to generate a comprehensive report that includes all of your records, it's a good idea to set your date range as far back and as far into the future as possible to ensure that no records are omitted.
To generate a report that incorporates records for only a single year, select a range of January 1 to December 31 of that year.
PRO will generate reports in either Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF. Please keep in mind, only reports generated as a Word document can be easily edited. Please note as well that any changes made to the Word document itself WILL NOT be reflected in the PRO system.
