Which scholars you hire and promote is crucial to get right. Why? Because professors define the institution. They drive the academic prestige of your college, school, or university with their research contributions. They shape a generation of alumni through teaching. And they create the intellectual community on campus.
In this free, on-demand webinar, hear how Clemson University has found success with faculty hiring by using Interfolio. See what three main problems they have solved with a centralized, committee-friendly online platform—no more shared drives, searching your email inbox for application documents, or endless back and forth compiling reference letters.

White Paper: Rebuilding Higher Education
Drawing on a direct survey of 600 faculty members and wide contextual research on academic careers in COVID-19 pandemic times, this fresh study from Interfolio and Hanover Research sheds new light on how academic/faculty affairs leaders can best position their institutions for success.
Often, a college or university first adopts an Interfolio module to solve a specific faculty process pain—such as digitizing tenure, hiring efficiently, or passing accreditation. Yet higher education leaders increasingly recognize the multifaceted Faculty Information System as an essential technology across the scholar lifecycle. In this panel, hear how the University of North Texas Health Science Center; the University of Michigan, Dearborn; and Tulane University have seen accumulating benefits from adopting multiple Interfolio modules over time.

What counts as faculty impact? We know there are many reasons why entities in academia seek to track the total impact of scholars’ work. In different situations, such goals might be securing funding, informing policy, recruiting competitively, representing fields equitably, or others. The difference in these end goals can influence how academic accomplishments are recognized and rewarded. Hear how several institutions are leveraging the Interfolio platform to tell a fuller story of faculty impact—in a modern way.

Universities develop highly specific processes for faculty professional evaluations in order to maintain academic excellence. Yet every year, the traditional administrative practices for processing P&T and other faculty reviews at once tie up a massive amount of time, and offer alarming room for error. Hear what institutions as diverse as the University of Colorado School of Medicine; the University of California, Los Angeles; and the Dartmouth College Faculty of Arts & Sciences have gained by shifting their tenure, promotion, and other faculty evaluations into Interfolio.

When higher education is the focus of news stories or the national spotlight, it is often not in the most flattering light. There are indeed important trends and concerns that higher education continues to work to address; however, there are also astonishing accomplishments that result from the ongoing work of institutions and their faculty. In this keynote, we briefly explored that national spotlight before focusing most specifically on the often-unheralded work that faculty perform in service to students, the public, and democracy. These endeavors are worthy of celebration. In an era where anxiety, compassion fatigue, and burnout are real threats to our faculty, this session concludes with concrete recommendations for how to meaningfully recognize faculty accomplishments as well as actions to take to ease burdens and reduce burnout.

Faculty Evaluations: Building Efficient Administrative Processes
Ongoing budget constraints and the past two years’ challenges require institutions of all sizes to do more with less. Faculty, administrative staff, and software choices are not spared from this necessity.
We know faculty members are focused on the vital work of teaching students, making valuable contributions to their fields, and providing critical service to the institution.
And your professional staff—from faculty affairs, to the provost and dean’s offices, to the departments—provide essential support for that work.
So how can you help build administrative processes that work more efficiently, and support faculty more effectively?
We invite you to watch this on-demand webinar with Kean University and the University of Rhode Island so you can hear firsthand best practices to re-engage and motivate your faculty and staff with the modern, user-friendly Interfolio platform for faculty evaluations.
Ultimately, institutions that fail to support faculty work with the right technology—rather than just any digital method—will be left behind by those that do.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- Firsthand experience from Kean University and URI about how the specialized Interfolio platform has alleviated administrative burdens for faculty and professional staff.
- The benefits (and struggles) of evolving from an existing digital system, or even moving from a paper process.
- Productive steps to take in the change management process to gain buy-in from (and hours back for) your faculty members across the board.
