Faculty are an essential part of an institution

At a smaller or specialized institution, the impact of faculty members is amplified, as professors often hold dual roles and wear multiple hats. Faculty advancement can often be a slow and labor-intensive process—facilitating responsible and timely evaluations of colleagues is challenging when all candidate accomplishments are housed in physical, paper-filled binders. It costs more than smaller colleges often realize, and can hold back advancement and job satisfaction in faculty roles.

Inefficient faculty advancement processes cost time and money, but that’s not all

While inefficient promotion, review, and tenure processes can be costly to an institution, looking at monetary cost alone ignores the larger issues plaguing the system. The typical paper-based system doesn’t allow a bird’s-eye view to ensure processes are equitable, and can ignore initiatives like hiring a diverse workforce, and aiming to meet accreditation standards. This is why over 300 institutions in higher education have turned to Interfolio to manage faculty data and workflows.
