American University of Paris-Webinar

On-Demand Webinar: Academic Hiring and Promotion Worldwide

Featuring London Business School + American University of Paris

In this virtual presentation about more effectively and equitably managing academic employment workflows, especially hiring and promotion, we spoke with two global universities about their challenges and outcomes of adopting Interfolio to manage such processes.

As American University of Paris and London Business School have seen with regard to their academic recruitment experience, Interfolio takes a distinctive scholar-centric approach. Interfolio gives both academics and professional staff a familiar, consistent experience throughout both the hiring and evaluation/promotion experiences.

In addition to hearing from AUP and LBS, you will be privy to a brief demonstration of the Interfolio modules for hiring and for promotion/evaluation. In these areas, the multi-module Interfolio Faculty Information System benefits universities with:

  • More efficient academic evaluation workflows
  • More equitable and transparent academic employment practices
  • Better supported scholar development
  • And more

What you’ll learn

By using Interfolio to manage the hiring of new academics and as a workflow for promotional processes, our client guests have gained:

  • Significant efficiencies while mirroring human resources’ processes, leading to a streamlined process for both applicants and hiring committees
  • A consistent, secure, digital environment to manage faculty promotions and reviews instead of a complex, paper-based workflow
  • Greater clarity and ease for prospective instructors/researchers who are considering or applying to academic positions at the institution
