Getting Help with Effort Reporting
Everyone who is required to certify effort has a designated effort coordinator. The effort coordinator can answer your questions, monitor certification activity, and follow up with any late certification issues. The name of your effort coordinator appears on your effort statement. If you are not sure who your effort coordinator is, please contact your department administrator or your Dean’s office. You can also email us at email@example.com or call Robin Cavalier-Brown (713) 500-3392.
The following UTHealth resources are also available to answer your effort reporting questions:
