University policy requires that all academic appointees at UCSF be periodically evaluated to assure that they are meeting the requirements for their series and rank. Academic review actions include Appointment, Appraisal, Career Review, Change in Series, Five Year Review, Merit, and Promotion. At UCSF, the academic review process is managed within the Advance application. Academic appointees - Faculty and non-Faculty Academics (NFAs) – use Advance to manage their Curriculum Vitae (CV) and to compile the documentation required for academic review. Below, you can find instructions on how to prepare your own review packet and how to review your colleagues’ packets in Advance.
