With one-click activity report downloads, it's easy for faculty to report up to a dean quickly and accurately, ensuring that institutional leaders have the information they need to make strategic, data-driven decisions. Accreditation reporting is simple with on-demand reports formatted to specific requirements. With data visibility, ensure that each faculty member has a balanced workload between teaching, research, and service. Better insights mean that your institution has the complete picture to promote the story of academic excellence. 

Promotion and tenure review are time-intensive processes. With FIS, it’s easier for faculty to prepare and faster for committees to review. With customizable workflows, committee management, and confidential recommendations, you can streamline the review process and take the burden off of faculty shoulders. 

FIS can be customized to meet the unique needs and workflows of each department, without sacrificing institutional oversight. Reporting rolls up into a centralized overview so faculty affairs doesn’t have to manually combine multiple reports, but each college and department gets to maintain their independence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Academic tenure is a type of employment offered to professors by higher education institutions. When a professor becomes tenured, their status as a faculty member of that institution becomes essentially indefinite; a tenured professor can only be terminated for cause or under extraordinary circumstances, such as severe institution-wide financial struggles. Tenure has traditionally been a way to ensure academic freedom, since tenured faculty can explore hot-button issues and varying points of view without fear of termination. 

Achieving tenure is a huge milestone for many college and university faculty members, but it can be a long process and sometimes, it’s difficult to qualify. Less than half of full-time college faculty have tenure, and nearly 75% of faculty positions are not tenure-track positions. A professor in a non-tenure-track position can never achieve tenure in that role. Professors who are in tenure-track positions often apply for tenure after 6 years, and the review process can be lengthy. Some schools give a 15-month timeline to tenure candidates. The process is also arduous for candidates, who have to gather all of their work, publications, achievements, student feedback, and more into one place for the review committee. Digitizing faculty information with FIS can save huge amounts of time for faculty members, who don’t have to go digging in old emails and filing cabinets, and for review committees, who don’t have to search through files or pass around a hard drive or physical folder of information.

During implementation, PeopleAdmin works with academic affairs to train faculty on the system. Additionally, help guides are embedded throughout FIS to help remind faculty how the system works without pulling up a separate support manual.

FIS connects with a variety of external faculty data providers, including ORCiD, so that faculty can pull in existing data about their works. FIS also connects to internal systems like Banner to help source and load data on behalf of faculty from across campus. During implementation, your team will discuss the systems that already exist on campus and the best methods for connecting them to FIS.

Yes. Data within FIS can be used to populate faculty web profiles. As faculty keep their information up to date in FIS, it will automatically update on their web profiles too.
