Please join us for a free webinar and Q&A to introduce the faculty information system (FIS), a comprehensive category of academic technology outlined by higher education leaders and brought to life by Interfolio.
We’ll hear from Interfolio CEO Andrew Rosen and other leaders at Interfolio about the urgent challenges that have given rise to this development, and why Interfolio’s groundbreaking faculty information system will serve as the single source of truth for valuable, validated faculty data and decision support on campus.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
What a faculty information system is (and what it is not)
How Interfolio’s two-way dialogue with clients informs our technology roadmap
Which kinds of academic institutions stand to benefit from the faculty information system
Sneak peek: what’s a faculty information system?
It’s a single platform that supports the full scholarly and career lifecycle of faculty members. For years, faculty work has gone unsupported by emerging technology and unrepresented in the university technology ecosystem. Until recently, faculty have largely gone without any tools suited to their role and institutions have lacked any technologies adequate to collect or study data on the faculty who drive the school’s mission.
While the outcomes of using a faculty information system overlap with existing systems—research and grant data management, for instance, or campus-wide ERPs—the Interfolio FIS is uniquely devoted to the gathering full picture of faculty work, decisions, and data at your institution and providing a set of valuable tools to the individual faculty member.
