UW Evaluator’s Guide to Interfolio Faculty Search


The following steps will help you navigate search committee activities in and around Interfolio’s Faculty Search (FS) which includes:

  • Accessing application materials
  • Rating applicants against evaluation criteria
  • Using UW’s standard applicant disposition codes
  • Requesting/reviewing reference letters

This guide is intentionally minimal so users—especially first time users—have a concise reference that covers the basics of evaluating applicants.  Interfolio, however, has a wide variety of additional functionality to support or enhance the evaluation process. Links to learn more about additional features are included throughout this guide.

The full menu of Interfolio Faculty Search guides is available at Help for Interfolio Faculty Search. Be aware, however, that Interfolio’s guides will not have UW-specific recruitment requirements and may not reflect institutional settings UW has put in place for UW users.

Understanding the Evaluator role

Search committees are a necessary and integral part of UW’s recruitment goals and principles. The Evaluator role is assigned by department-level or college-level FS Administrator and is the appropriate role for search committee members charged with reviewing and evaluating applications. Evaluators cannot create or edit positions, change position or application statuses, or assign applicant disposition codes. If assigned to a search committee, you should receive an invitation from your unit’s search Administrator notifying you of your Evaluator access to Interfolio.
