Faculty ePortfolio Implementation

The Faculty E-Portfolio Steering Committee has embarked on the implementation phase of the Online Promotion, Tenure and Reappointment Project.  Requirements and processes for the online system for reappointments, and promotion and tenure reviews have been identified. Exciting work has begun with our vendor, Data180 to build a system that meets the needs of all faculty in all four colleges.  The system will also be utilized to facilitate faculty activity reporting (PARs), as well as faculty research information gathering for report generation.

The goal is to have one online system and process across all four colleges that will provide faculty members due for reappointment or promotion and tenure review, the flexibility to upload dossiers to an online system. This system would then provide deans, chairs, faculty, and promotion and tenure committees, viewing capability of the on-line dossiers, in addition to adding other pertinent documentation such as external evaluator letters, department chair letter, dean letter, etc. The dossier would then be complete for final review by the Provost’s Office.  A Faculty ePortfolio Implementation Team has been assembled to assist in effectively moving the project forward.
