Georgetown Case Study:

Streamlining Faculty Hiring with Seamless Integrations

At your institution, how do different schools and departments approach faculty hiring? Do you find that there are different approaches and points of data collection? You might consider this deferential policy to be harmless, but like all choices, it has costs.

Georgetown University adopted Interfolio Faculty Search to mitigate these costs.

“Across our 10 schools, we had multiple processes for faculty recruitment: we had people using shared drives and email, people using Interfolio Faculty Search, others using competitors to Interfolio, and still others using mail only,” explained Charlie Leonhardt, Georgetown University’s Director of Online Initiatives and Innovation.

“When you have this kind of Wild West, it’s impossible to gather all the demographic data from all of the processes across the University to see how well you’re doing in attracting diverse faculty,” Charlie said.

In this video, Georgetown will demonstrate the following outcomes of adopting Interfolio:

  • A consistent process for candidates and departments
  • Uniform data collection for applicants and committees
  • Compliance with EEO and Demographic Reporting
  • Increased efficiency by saving time on transfers of information
  • How easy Interfolio is to use for applicants and search committees
