Customize Faculty Classifications

Faculty classifications provide a basis for classifying faculty members into useful categories within Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR, Faculty180). They enable tracking of faculty characteristics, such as faculty rank, tenure status, and employment status (full time or part time). These classifications are used for filtering to select particular groups of faculty when using the Faculty Selection Tool. Setting up Faculty Classifications is a critical step in preparing for accreditation reporting. Access to manage Faculty Classifications is a unit permission. Users will need Full Administrative Rights. For more information, check out our article on Faculty Classifications.

 

To update Faculty Classification values after data has been loaded, such as changing a rank name, please contact help@interfolio.com for support from our Technical Services Team.
