Statement of Academic Activity
The Statement of Academic Activity is one of many tools designed to facilitate and recognise the achievements of our most important resource, our staff. The statement will be used to reflect on an individual’s activity, to plan their professional development and to ensure that the University’s data is complete and accurate to help make informed decisions.
A critical element of any professional development activity is meaningful, two-way engagement between a staff member and their supervisor. The Statement of Academic Activity is a useful tool to assist in those regular conversations regarding achievements and progress.
Academic activity is diverse and complex, the objectives and focus of individuals in the context of their career change over time. The Statement of Academic Activity aims to bring together activity data reflecting this diversity.
Information on the data contained in the report can be found on the report inclusions, sources and methodologies page of this website.
Much of the data contained in the Statement of Activity also plays a critical role in other key institutional practices including but not limited to data collections on which our funding is based, support for funding requests and opportunities, rankings and internal management decisions. The Statement provides an ideal opportunity for those best placed, the academics themselves, to review the data about their activity that is held in central systems. It provides a mechanised to advise us, through the feedback mechanisms built into the report, of any known issues so the data can be corrected and maintained at the highest possible quality.
