Sarah B. Steinberg, Ed.D + Interfolio: Institutional Impediments to Faculty Service and Productivity

Thursday, January 28, 2016 / 2:00-3:00 PM EST

Faculty are the greatest investment an institution makes in its success: so why is their service often unsupported? Faculty also hold some of the most important institutional decisions in their hands, like hiring, tenure, and curriculum. Despite this value, most colleges and universities have a disproportionate investment in technology for student success. By not providing adequate means for enhancing workflow and data access, institutions inadvertently impede their faculty’s productivity, which costs time, money, and research outcomes. Technological solutions exist for nearly every other segment of higher education, from student success and retention to alumni giving: so why not for faculty?

Join Sarah Steinberg, Ed.D., Founder of Frogstone Strategies and Former Executive Vice Provost at Johns Hopkins University, to discuss:

  • Recent hiring trends and the resulting impact on faculty work
  • The true cost of faculty service on financial, research, and recruitment outcomes
  • The role of technology in supporting faculty work and making service to the institution more effective and efficient
