On-Demand Webinar: Modernizing Faculty Affairs Practices at San Diego State University + Tulane University + UMBC

Free Webinar Presented by HERC + Interfolio

What are leading universities doing today to make their faculty affairs practices more equitable and consistent when it comes to recruitment and retention? 

And what recent faculty careers trends must academic leaders respond to in the coming 1-2 years?

Watch this free, on-demand webinar presented jointly by the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) and Interfolio, on how San Diego State University, University of Maryland-Baltimore County, and Tulane University support the unique demands of faculty employment in a modern way—and what they’re looking ahead to. This event originally took place on Thursday, November 3 from Noon to 1pm ET.

All three institutions have been using Interfolio for some combination of faculty hiring and faculty tenure/promotion and other evaluations for over seven years. SDSU is a member of HERC and the lead institution of the Southern California HERC. Dr. Reed of UMBC serves on the advisory board for the National and Mid-Atlantic HERC. Tulane uses the full Interfolio Faculty Information System suite.
