FAQs for PRO Closure

On June 26, the Office of the Provost announced that the School of Architecture and Design, the School of Pharmacy, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences declined to renew their access to Faculty PRO. This page offers FAQs for faculty and staff in those schools about transitioning out of PRO.

Question

Answer

When will I lose access to my PRO? July 10, 2018. The PRO Office recommends that faculty who use PRO update their information and generate any reports they wish to store for themselves before that deadline.
What will happen to my webpage that's pulling information from my PRO? After July 10, webpages will no longer update. Content already on the webpage will remain. To update your webpage after July 10, contact your department's website administrator.
What will happen to my information kept in PRO? The University of Kansas owns those data and they will be archived by both KU IT and the software vendor Digital Measures. The Office of Faculty Development and Mentoring will also archive records in a searchable spreadsheet format and will create an archive of comprehensive CVs that faculty and staff can access by request.
Can I get a copy of my data in PRO? Yes. You can run an "ad hoc" report in PRO by selecting the "Create New Report" option on the Run Reports screen. Make sure the "Data to Include" selection is set to All Fields. You can save your data as a zipped file of .csv files or as a single file in .xlm format. If you would like any assistance in obtaining a copy of your data, please contact Emily Lowrance-Floyd in Faculty Development (lowrance@ku.edu).
What if I had been planning to use PRO for promotion and tenure? The Office of Faculty Development and Mentoring will create an archive of P&T and PTTR candidate CVs generated by PRO for faculty approaching P&T milestones. Please feel free to contact Emily Lowrance-Floyd (lowrance@ku.edu) for more information or to request a copy of your P&T/PTTR candidate CV.
I'm jointly appointed in a school that will renew Faculty PRO. What will happen to my PRO account? Faculty who hold a joint appointment in a school that will renew PRO will have their accounts transferred to that school. Your PRO will still be active.
