Completed: Digital Measures Implementation Project
Digital Measures has been implemented for all colleges and libraries as of July 2020. Over the past two years, the project team has entered over 1,000 faculty members' data from their CVs and facilitated 145 faculty training sessions.
Digital Measures was implemented by the Office of the Provost in collaboration with IT Services. Going forward, this service is under the purview of the Office of the Provost.
Visit the university's Digital Measures page to log in, sign up for training, find how tos and more.
When a college is onboarded into the system, IT Services meets with chairs/heads to review processes and discuss their unique needs, as well as provides training and support for faculty and administrators. During the implementation, IT Services entered three years of historical faculty CV data for each college.
Note: New faculty who begin work after the implementation are be responsible for importing their own data.
