I am a faculty member and my international activities are not showing. Why?
There are several reasons why your data might not be showing:
- You can ONLY search by country OR college/department OR faculty last name OR keyword. Ensure that the appropriate radio button is chosen for your search and that the search term is selected or entered in the field.
- Faculty activities in the Inventory are fed from the FAR and MBM systems. Activities need to be tagged with the international (FAR) or global impact flag (MBM) in your profile, have the appropriate country(ies) selected , and be flagged for public display to appear in the inventory (see screenshot below).

- Faculty name search must be entered as LAST name (or partial last name) only.
- Keywords must be entered as a full term or keyword. For example, entering "chem" will not return results for "chemistry" or "chemical."
- Updated data can take upwards of 24 hours to be fed into the Inventory from FAR and MBM.
- If you have updated your data and it has been longer than 24 hours, please contact us.
My name is not listed in results and I have done international work. Why?
