On-Demand: Virtual Roundtable: Driving Faculty and Institutional Success

The last 18 months have created unique difficulties for every industry—and higher education is no exception. Ongoing change is inevitable, and supporting faculty is even more crucial now. Indeed, faculty are at the crux of institutional success, impacting governance, cost, revenue, student success, inclusion, and rank.

So how can you best support their growth and development?

Listen to the conversation with faculty affairs leaders who are using the Faculty Information System to not only make hiring, advancement, and activity reporting simpler, administratively, for their faculty—but also to make a real impact on a faculty member’s career progression.

With additional visibility into the data and their faculty, universities can explore:

  • Is there an equitable service workload across faculty?
  • How to address advancement with regards to research and tenure pauses, especially with the disproportionate effect on women, caretakers, and BIPOC faculty.
  • What are trends in promotions and advancement, and how can mentoring or additional interventions support early career faculty?
  • How to showcase a range of faculty and their research in press and promotional materials.

We gathered for an interactive conversation to hear how the Interfolio platform provides administrators and department chairs data and visibility to support scholars across their career journey.
