San Diego State

San Diego State University became an Interfolio client partner in 2014. They currently use Interfolio Faculty Search and Review, Promotion & Tenure. San Diego State University uses Interfolio to make faculty recruitment, promotion, and tenure more equitable and consistent. Since adoption, Interfolio has helped San Diego State’s process become more effective through more convenient confidential letter collection, closer monitoring of diversity initiatives, and the creation of a professional, consistent experience for faculty on both sides of the tenure committee review experience.

Webinar: San Diego State University & Interfolio

We talk with Assoc. VP Joanna Brooks and Administrative Analyst Kavalya Young from SDSU’s Office of Faculty Advancement. The webinar addresses how SDSU has successfully made their faculty hiring and promotion processes more transparent, efficient, and equitable by managing them through Interfolio.

Case Study: San Diego State University

“We’ve found that bureaucratic anxiety about procedural details was overshadowing the more important effort to help faculty build their careers and advance. We’re excited about moving away from the physical demands of the box and towards a more digital, accessible solution that allow us to focus on substantive conversations about promotion and tenure.”

-Joanna Brooks, Associate Vice President of Faculty Advancement and Professor of English and Comparative Literature
