Interfolio Announces First Faculty Information System in Higher Education
WASHINGTON, D.C., April 17, 2018 / The Interfolio Faculty Information System—the first-ever engagement platform for the entire scope of faculty activity, decisions, and data—launched in the higher education technology market this month.
Driven by a need to help scholars tell their professional and scholarly story, as well as to overcome the arduous management of shared governance and data collection processes on campus, colleges and universities are increasingly turning to Interfolio to help solve their most pressing strategic initiatives with the aid of validated faculty data, transparent workflows, and trusted outcomes.
“When we began searching for a product well-suited to support our academic processes, Interfolio emerged as a leader in the area of faculty technology,” according to Alysia K. Loshbaugh, Assistant Provost for Finance and Operations in the Office of Academic Affairs and Provost at Tulane University. “Interfolio’s cornerstone belief that clients are more than clients—they are partners—coupled with the flexibility of its faculty-first products made it a clear and obvious choice when we were looking to enhance resources to better support our faculty.”
Interfolio’s recent release brings together its faculty technology modules—products for hiring, review and tenure, and activity reporting—into a unified platform or “single source of truth” to provide critical analytic insight into the scholarly engine powering the institution. By leveraging shared governance workflows that capitalize on faculty lifecycle moments—like hiring, grant seeking, research, committee work, course evaluations, annual review, and tenure evaluations—the Faculty Information System creates powerful incentives for faculty buy-in and validation of data by providing tools that make their working lives easier and more effective.
“We’ve been astonished by the demand,” says Andrew Rosen, CEO, Interfolio. “It’s clear that universities and colleges are seeing the need to help connect their most valuable campus resource—faculty—to their most pressing institutional challenges, whether around revenue, student success, research success, rank and prestige, diversity, or governance.”
