Why Activity Insight?
A university’s faculty is its most valuable asset. Faculty accomplishments increase the university’s prestige, attract students and funding, and draw an even higher caliber of faculty. But just accomplishing these activities isn’t enough: they must be promoted to key stakeholders including accreditors, funders, donors, state legislators, the media and others. Universities depend so heavily on faculty accomplishments as they’re used to evaluate the performance of their faculty in annual reviews and when faculty seek promotion or tenure.
Faculty activities and accomplishments include:
- Performances and exhibits
- Academic advising
- Courses taught
- Dissertation supervision
- Non-credit instruction taught
- Businesses and other organizations
- Professional academic organizations
- The university
- Their academic discipline
- Awards and honors
- Faculty development activities
- Professional memberships
For all of these reasons, it’s vital to gain an understanding of faculty activities in a timely manner.
Unfortunately, without software for managing this information, universities ask their faculty for very similar—if not the same—information about their activities up to 12 times per year via email. Mass emails are sent to a university’s hundreds of faculty at seemingly random times, consistency, and significant staff time is spent aggregating, counting, reformatting and reporting on information.
This process happens each and every time faculty activity information is needed. It isn’t fun for anyone.
Capture information once, use it infinitely
