Quick Reference Guide to Dossier Institution for Faculty Members
What is Dossier?
Dossier, by Interfolio, is an online platform for faculty to collect, categorize, manage, and store scholarly materials in a secure, centralized place accessible only by you. Dossier may be integrated with your institution's new electronic case and committee review system, Review, Promotion & Tenure. This integration allows faculty to move selected materials easily from your private Dossier into your electronic file.
Soon, Faculty180 Users will have access to a Dossier to be able to store their information and connect to Review, Promotion, & Tenure. Allowing for institutions to track faculty work within Faculty180 and take advantage of the advantageous presentation and processes of Review, Promotion, and Tenure.
