Customize: Faculty Classifications

The content in this knowledge base is based upon the standard FACULTY180 environment. Your institution may have made changes to configure the FACULTY180 environment to meet your institution's needs; therefore, the screens in your FACULTY180 environment may differ slightly from the knowledge base. For more information, please contact your FACULTY180 administrator.

If you need to update Faculty Classification values after data has been loaded (ex. changing a rank name), please contact for support from our Technical Services Team.

Faculty classifications provide a basis for classifying faculty members into useful categories within FACULTY180. They enable tracking of faculty characteristics, such as faculty rank, tenure status, and employment status (full time or part time). They are also used in reporting for filtering and selecting particular groups of faculty.

Setting up faculty classifications is a critical step in preparing for accreditation reporting.
