Faculty must go to “Your Contract" to mark attended at activities and completion of independent projects.

Independent Projects

An Independent Project is an activity that an individual faculty member uses to enhance the quality and effectiveness of their instructional knowledge and/or skill. Faculty will be required to self-report completion of an independent project.

For independent projects that have been submitted (“In Process” status) and approved (“Input” status), faculty must return to “Your Contract” after completion of the project to:

  1. Mark the project as completed, and
  2. Click the “submit” button to receive Flex credit.

Independent Project proposals will not require advance agreement. However, if during the origination of your project the status is “See Dean/Chair,” it is best that you check with your Chair and/or Dean for ways to modify the project proposal. You should then resubmit to receive full Flex credit.

Independent projects that have been saved ("Saved" status) is not considered as a submitted independent project and cannot be viewed by the Flex Coordinator for review.
