What is Interfolio?

Interfolio is an enhanced "faculty-first" higher education technology that offers a digital solution for faculty review, tenure, promotion, and activity reporting.  The system includes a dynamic workflow that supports the full scope of an academic review - from initial file submission and requests for external evaluation letters - through the delivery of a final decision.  Interfolio also provides a powerful faculty activity collection tool that will facilitate the extraction of data from various campus and in some cases, third party databases, such as PubMed in order to create biobibs and CVs.



  • Provides academics with tools for activity sharing and analytics
  • Eases the burden of manual preparation of academic review file materials
  • Increased process efficiency and transparency
  • No file limits- all review and appointment files from General Campus, SIO, and Health Sciences can be processed


Launch Timeline

Academic Personnel Services will be implementing Interfolio over the course of the next two years.  We are currently accepting volunteers for the 2018-2019 academic year pilot, and anticipate full campus integration for the 2019-2020 academic year and beyond.

Departments or individual faculty members interested in participating in the early adoption period can contact Cindy Palmer at c5palmer@ucsd.edu or (858) 534-3133.
