Digital Measures

June 30 will be the last day in which faculty will be able to access Digital Measures. The grand majority of information housed in Digital Measures by that deadline will be mapped to Elements, but Elements won’t be readily accessible until January.


Digital Measures is a tool for faculty members. Faculty members can create reports for annual reviews, career awards, CVs, P&T, and more.
