Works is an online faculty activity reporting system designed to make it easier for faculty to maintain 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, website bios, and standardized University promotion and tenure CVs.

Faculty and many instructional staff on all University of Minnesota campuses have active accounts and can use Works immediately, even if their college/campus has not yet adopted Works for annual activity reporting.
