Centralized data hub for faculty staffing, evaluation and accreditation compliance saves colleges and universities time and money

APL nextED, a trailblazer in faculty management technology, has announced the launch of its Faculty Management Solution (FMS), a comprehensive digital solution for managing, measuring and reporting on all tenured and non-tenured faculty data. APL’s FMS is the first of its kind to offer faculty lifecycle management for both tenure and non-tenure track faculty.

APL’s new Faculty Management Solution benefits higher education institutions in numerous ways including time and cost savings related to faculty hiring and staffing, evaluation and promotion, professional development, and accreditation review preparation. The platform allows colleges and universities to centralize data in one secure single sign-on platform for improved data quality and accessibility. Dr. Vipin Gupta of California State San Bernardino commented, “I can't commend the APL team enough for their professionalism, promptness and service mindset. APL's platform is simple and a delight to manage.”

“APL nextED is improving the way higher education collects and uses their faculty data,” said Kathleen Gibson, APL nextEd Founder and CEO. “Today data is stored in multiple systems across departments, sometimes even in paper files. With the APL nextED platform all this data is quickly accessed and easily managed.”

In addition to simplifying workflows and centralizing data, APL nextED is poised to serve as a vital resource when an institution is preparing for accreditation review. APL nextED provides a variety of standardized and customizable reports that make reporting to stakeholders easy and efficient. “Streamlining the task of assembling faculty information can not only smooth and inform the accreditation process but also support institutional research, planning and recruitment,” said Jamienne Studley, former deputy under secretary, US Department of Education, and a member of APL nextED’s advisory board.

“As the APL nextED platform provides efficiencies for administrators and faculty, there is more time to focus on students and learning.” states Gibson. “More than 60 years of research shows that excellent teaching is the single most important factor in student success. By simplifying time-consuming operational processes, APL helps support the primary goal of all colleges and universities, student learning and success.”

Founded in 2015, APL launched as a talent matching service for colleges and universities that needed qualified faculty to teach. The CEO, Kathleen Gibson, founded the company after spending 14 years in higher education as a dean and professor.
