“Such limitations suggest that the technology that looks best from a traditional HR perspective may in fact be hindering departments’ ability to make faculty recruitment decisions in an efficient and strategic way.”
Is HR-driven software the wrong tool for faculty committee decisions?
This Interfolio white paper frames the technical needs of shared governance in terms of five specific needs of the academic committee process that characteristically go unmet by compliance- and liability-oriented human resources information systems (HRIS).

- how communication with candidates, committees, and letter writers goes unsupported by primarily HR-focused business systems
- what prevents schools from using conventional enterprise technologies to manage the most significant faculty professional reviews (e.g. tenure)
