We believe that if you build for faculty first, you benefit the entire institution.
In service of this goal, all of Interfolio’s teams rally around a few, central attributes that guide our engagement with higher education, technology, clients, research, and strategy.
Service to the community
As a company and as individuals, we are members of a broader community. We strive to contribute to these communities—and the collective landscape of higher education—with the belief that serving the greater good is the highest calling.
We champion a practice of visibility. Shedding light on opaque practices and pursuing truth through research and data will make us better as a company, and will help the institutions we serve better understand, use, and promote the contribution of faculty and their scholarship.
Challenge the status quo
Whether working with each other or with institutions, we challenge the accepted orthodoxy. Testing the validity of process, ideas, and principles allows us to see past existing hierarchies and biases in order to find a better way.
Peer review & critique
We seek continual improvement through assessment and peer critique. Because we value the contribution and work of our colleagues, we spend time thinking critically about it and offering honest them feedback in order to improve.
Strength through diversity
A diverse community is a stronger community. We value diversity in thoughts, ideas, and processes. Just as we strive to create an inclusive workplace, we also help institutions reach their goals to cultivate a vibrant academic culture that benefits from a plurality of expertise.
The pursuit of equity
We strive to become more consistent, standard, and fair in our practices and how we treat each other. We help higher education maintain its commitment to the rejection of bias in favor of the equitable assessment of merit in order to advance knowledge.
