Faculty ePortfolio

Introducing Lehigh's New Faculty ePortfolio System

Lyterati is an electronic storage system that allows faculty members to record their accomplishments in the areas of research, teaching and service and is used for generating faculty Professional Activity Reports (PAR). The system will also be used for reappointments, promotion and tenure, annual reviews and triennial reviews.

First Reappointment (R1)

The first reappointment (R1) module is now open. It is designed for online dossier review and evaluation and is a document upload/download module, with a secure, role-based electronic workflow.

Training sessions have been held for R1 faculty candidates, College Level Administrators (CLADs), and Deans, Department Chairs, and Special Committee Chairs.  The First Reappointment Review Schedule for Faculty Appointed in Fall 2016 remains the same.

The R1 training materials have been uploaded within the Lyterati system and can be found under the Resources tab. The training materials are also available on the provost site.
