Watermark Faculty Success (formerly Digital Measures)

Watermark Faculty Success (formerly Digital Measures) is a secure and reliable web-based tool for faculty to collect, manage and report their teaching, research and service activities, along with their accomplishments and professional activities. The Watermark Faculty Success structure allows data to be arranged in output documents, including but not limited to a CV, presenter biography, department roster, and reports required by accrediting bodies.  Many W&M faculty are actively involved in engaging students in a variety of exciting and meaningful ways. It is increasingly important for faculty to document this work so it is appropriately acknowledged in annual activity reports, tenure and promotion documents, and external reports to our various constituencies and accrediting bodies. Watermark Faculty Success is a repository for faculty activities that allows faculty and administrators to view summary reports for departments, schools or colleges in a systematic and efficient manner.
