University of Michigan Selects Interfolio’s Faculty Information System to Support Faculty Hiring, Affirmative Action, and EEO
July 13, 2018
We are excited to announce that the University of Michigan, a major public research institution, has adopted Interfolio’s Faculty Search platform for use campus-wide to support faculty hiring processes, affirmative action, and EEO reporting. The adoption represents an expansion of the University’s relationship with Interfolio, evolving since 2014 from one school to five major academic units just prior to the current institution-wide expansion. Interfolio, a leader in faculty-focused higher education technology, will support UM in meeting its goals and responsibilities with regard to hiring academic personnel.
“The university is responsible for collecting and reporting affirmative action and EEO data, and it requires this information to be accurate and complete as a basis for supporting these goals,” said U-M’s lead for HR Records and Information Services. “We look for the tools that help us to get accurate data—quicker and more easily.”
The Faculty Search module is part of Interfolio’s Faculty Information System, the first technology platform in higher education dedicated to facilitating faculty engagement throughout the entire academic lifecycle. The University of Michigan joins over 200 institutions in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Asia using Interfolio solutions to support faculty-focused hiring, review workflows, and activity data management.
“The University of Michigan is truly a leader in higher education, showing extraordinary vision and commitment to its mission of ‘preeminence in creating, communicating, preserving and applying knowledge, art, and academic values’ to benefit its service region and the world,” said Andrew Rosen, CEO, Interfolio. “We are excited to support the University in its efforts to make a significant and positive impact on faculty and institutional diversity initiatives.”
