How did Yale University improve the logistics of their review, promotion, and tenure processes?

Thursday, June 11, 2020 / 2-3 p.m. EST

Yale University struggled with a convoluted faculty promotion workflow that was dependent on one centralized office.

Since 2014, when they were early adopters of Interfolio’s Review, Promotion & Tenure module, Yale has dramatically reduced the workload of the faculty affairs office, while still incorporating the oversight, support, and approval standards required by the institution. Two faculty affairs leaders from Yale discuss the challenges they faced and how their use of Interfolio has evolved over time, including what has changed for their office during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Featuring:

  • Pam Bosward, Assistant Director of Faculty Affairs
  • Audrey Bribiescas, Faculty Services Manager

We will discuss:

  • How the current environment influenced Yale’s review, promotion, and tenure processes
  • Best practices around implementing a review, promotion, and tenure process using a digital platform like Interfolio
  • Benefits Yale realized from an online review, promotion and tenure process

Comparing the effect of the coronavirus pandemic to the effect of the Second World War, the crisis has disrupted virtually all aspects of life and mobilised nations on a scale not seen since that conflict.

In this webinar, Jonathan Grant, Professor of Public Policy, The Policy Institute, King’s College London, will discuss how the coronavirus pandemic is likely to have a profound impact on the way that research and science is funded, administered and conducted—and these changes could shape the next generation of science policy.
