Drexel University has partnered with Thomson Reuters to design and implement Faculty Portfolios, a campus service that will comprehensively collect and manage information about faculty academic activities from various sources and will use analytic tools to identify research collaborators, produce evidence for tenure, promotion and program reviews, and formulate comparisons and ranking of Drexel research and academic output with other institutions. Data will include such information as scholarly and creative works, civic engagement activities, teaching, and research funding. Librarians, with expertise in the scholarship of specific disciplines, will assist and train faculty and administrators in contributing data to the centralized database and creating customized reports. With sponsorship from the Provost's Office, an implementation team is working closely with faculty and staff to configure the system for use at Drexel.
Currently, faculty may create their own portfolios by entering specified information. Assistance from the Libraries liaison librarians is available. After installing an initial portfolio the faculty member may update information anytime, and the portfolio will be maintained centrally. You can reach the Faculty Portfolios service at drexel.edu/facultyportfolios.
