Faculty Information System

PeopleAdmin’s Faculty Information System reduces administrative burden on faculty, freeing them up to focus on teaching, research, and service.

When you free faculty to be more productive, they can spend more time impacting student outcomes, applying for more grants, bringing in more funding, and making discoveries that will impact the way we understand the world.

Faculty-Friendly Processes. Institutional Insights

PeopleAdmin’s Faculty Information System (FIS) reduces administrative burden on faculty, giving them a low- to no-touch solution to collect and organize their academic achievements. FIS houses information such as education history, work experience, professional contributions, publications, and research.

And with real-time connections with ORCID and other online databases, it keeps current and previous work in sync. Creating a biosketch or CV is as simple as selecting what should be included and downloading a formatted and editable form at the click of a button.

And while FIS is so intuitive and easy to use, faculty feel supported by a world-class institution, there are cross-campus benefits as well.

It can be customized by department for unique needs and workflows, but rolls up into a centralized overview so faculty affairs doesn’t have to combine multiple reports. And when the institution has better insight into things like teaching, research, grants, and publications, it helps to streamline the promotion and tenure process, brings transparency and equity, and gives institutions the complete picture to better promote their academic excellence.

Features & Benefits

 

  • Faculty can build a digital activity record, which can then create CVs, bio sketches, and annual activity reporting at the click of a button.
