Ditching the Binder: How Sewanee Took Promotion & Tenure Online
February 25, 2016 / 2:00-3:00 PM EST
We speak with Elizabeth Skomp, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Russian and Associate Dean of the Faculty at Sewanee, The University of the South, about how they’ve improved their faculty promotion and tenure experience with ByCommittee.
Interfolio’s Katherine Kelly and Zachary Ulm host the call, asking Associate Dean Skomp about things like:
What challenges at Sewanee prompted their search for a digital promotion and tenure process?
What new efficiencies (both hoped-for and unexpected) have been created in the transition to ByCommittee?
What practical concerns did they encounter around adopting a centralized digital system on campus?
How has a central online platform improved the experience for Sewanee’s faculty and administrators
