With this new technology, the School will overhaul its faculty reporting process, increasing efficiency for both administrators and faculty. Interfolio Faculty Activity Reporting will make possible data analytics and reporting on faculty research, service, and teaching. Additionally, integration with academic and bibliographic sources will eliminate manual data entry while increasing data accuracy. Lastly, the collaborative features will allow faculty to expand their networks and search for colleagues with shared research interests.

The adoption of Interfolio’s platform will streamline faculty advancement with a system designed for committees and shared governance. This software supports the faculty by saving administrative work and increasing transparency.
