The Ohio State University's Faculty Information System
Interfolio, a leading academic faculty management and higher education technology firm, partnered with the university to develop a dynamic faculty information system (FIS) that meets the specific needs of faculty at Ohio State. The new FIS supports faculty throughout their entire lifecycle as they seek grants, submit journal articles, apply for awards, manage promotion and tenure materials, and share their contributions to the university and beyond; collecting information and making it readily accessible. Interfolio tools increase data access and give back valuable hours to faculty, staff and administration.
Review, Promotion & Tenure
Implementation of the Interfolio Review, Promotion & Tenure (RPT) tool will begin in autumn 2023. The RPT tool, which focuses only on the review component, allows Ohio State to conduct promotion & tenure reviews via Interfolio. Faculty (or a designee) submit their final materials to Interfolio to launch the review process.
Resources to learn more about RPT are available below.
Faculty Activity Reporting
Implementation of the Interfolio Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR) tool will take place over the course of the coming academic year, allowing faculty to track and tell their academic story.
