Background and Purpose of Academic Profile

Michigan State University’s Academic Profile (AP) is a web-based application for collecting faculty and academic staff accomplishments in a consistent, objective, and transparent manner. The data are used to support activities such as annual review; institutional reporting; and reappointment, promotion, and tenure. The university-wide AP system was selected via an RFP process in 2012 and uses a customized version of Activity Insight from vendor Digital Measures.

Academic Profile can also assist administrators in responding to requests for faculty-related data, rather than needing to ask you for the information. Further, AP can help MSU to communicate more effectively about your accomplishments.
