As of today, we have remade Interfolio’s Dossier product for individual scholars into a more valuable offering that includes both free and premium versions—making Dossier more affordable for the majority of candidates on the job market.
Our series on faculty technology at liberal arts colleges, begun in April with the Consortium for Faculty Diversity, continues this month with two members of the Provost Office at Bryn Mawr College. They’ll speak about the benefits of using Interfolio for both faculty hiring and advancement processes.
Tenure is, surely, the most visible and consequential formal academic review that a college or university faculty member encounters. But academic institutions certainly have in place many other types of formal faculty review processes—so it’s critical that Interfolio be able to accommodate those as well. And we do.
We’re thrilled to put on the first installment in a new free webinar series on faculty technology at liberal arts colleges—a joint presentation with the Consortium for Faculty Diversity, covering what they do and how Interfolio helps them do it.
One key reason that colleges and universities find Interfolio’s faculty review software so valuable is that it accommodates virtually every practical action involved in an academic committee decision. This month’s product release—arising from an array of thoughtful client input—serves equity and transparency with a new tool to enforce committee accountability.
So. You’re making new decisions about technology, logistics, and workflow that will require your college or university to embrace a new educational technology culture. It sounds wonderful on paper, but getting the faculty behind the project can be tricky.
This month, we’re putting on a free webinar and Q&A on an all but universal challenge in faculty activity reporting: how to consolidate data from many sources and formats into a single central faculty data hub on campus.
In the landscape of academic tenure and promotion reviews, communication—of the regular, formally documented ilk—is often singled out as a “good practice.” It’s also prudent to recognize that poor institutional communication has been fodder for lawsuits and appeals brought by denied candidates.
Our new white paper Equity and Legal Risk in Tenure Reviews, released this week, examines a variety of tenure denial cases across the U.S. The paper identifies four characteristic “areas of deficiency” around institutions’ tenure practices in situations when candidates have brought legal action over a denial: clarity, consistency, communication, and the organization of documentation.
We want to highlight a recent development in Interfolio’s Dossier product, the academic portfolio software we’ve offered since 1999, that will support career development for scholars at institutions using our shared governance platform: institutional guidelines for review, promotion, and tenure.
