Processes and Principles

Foundational Principles

A committee for the Faculty Lifecycle Initiative drafted a set of principles that define the general rules and guidelines for all aspects of the initiative, reflect a level of consensus among the various elements of the initiative, and form the basis for making future decisions relevant to faculty data.

These principles were drafted to apply to all academic units within the university in order to provide a consistent and measurable level of quality information. View the principles here.

Data Standards and Duplicate Record Prevention Guidelines

The FIS shares basic data elements for faculty with the Student Information System (SIS) and the Human Capital Management System (HCM). Because maintaining accurate data is critical to all users of university systems, a policy that addresses enterprise data standards and duplicate record prevention was created.

The University expects all employees who maintain data in FIS, SIS, and HCM to abide by this policy. View the policy here.
