Setting Up and Maintaining Faculty Activity Reporting (Faculty360)

This article gives a brief overview of Faculty Activity Reporting (Faculty360) in Interfolio and provides instructions on how to access the platform, import information, edit information, and export information into a CV.

As of May 2024, the platform has rebranded from Faculty180 to Faculty360. The screenshots below may still show the Faculty180 branding but all steps and procedures remain the same.

What is Faculty Activity Reporting (Faculty360)?

Faculty Activity Reporting (also known as Faculty360) provides a centralized information hub containing teaching, research, service, and other faculty activity data with the goal of supporting faculty through processes such as retention, tenure, and promotion review, research collaboration, and mentoring.

With Faculty360, users can compile information on their activities, manage their faculty profiles, search for collaborators within the network, generate CVs and reports, connect to professional development resources, and access campus data on teaching, grants, and publications.

Select information can also be shared with the public to encourage collaboration and generate news media coverage, with faculty consent. Public profiles will be generated based on information from Faculty360. Biography, Education, Administrative Appointments, Work Experience, Professional Licensures, Honors and Awards, Teaching and Research Interests, Courses Taught, and Scholarly Contributions will be included in the public profiles. Faculty members will be able to choose what information to share.

Data from CSUF's previous faculty profile database has been transferred into Faculty Activity Reporting (Faculty360). However, the data may not align perfectly between the two platforms, so you may need to locate and edit data. You can review data in the Profile and Activities pages. Alternatively, you can generate a CV from the Vitas & Biosketches page to see what data has already been entered.

Modify Profile

What information is in my profile and how do I edit it?

This section will go over how to make changes to the information in your Faculty Activity Reporting (Faculty360) profile.
