Report of Non-University Activities (RNUA)
Annual Report and Disclosure of Non-University (RNUA) Activities
External activities that enhance academic staff members’ professional skills or constitute public service can benefit the University as well as the individual. However, because such activities can lead to conflicts of commitment or interest, they must be measured and monitored. The RNUA process provides a mechanism for the academic staff to annual disclose these external activities.
