Training

We use two products from the vendor Interfolio – one product we’ve rebranded as myVITA and another titled Review, Promotion and Tenure or RPT. We have access to to a third product from Interfolio that they make available to all customers which is called Dossier. UM System faculty can access all products from a single location - http://www.data180.com/faculty180/umsystem

Since we have a single location to access Interfolio materials, we provide links below to items common to all products and separate sections for myVITA – where you enter your accomplishments and RPT where you will manage promotion or tenure and in 2022 your annual evaluations.

Dossier


Interfolio "Dossier"

A component of our Interfolio instance is a product termed Dossier. Each faculty member and most graduate students will have an account in Dossier. This is a private account to help you collect and manage materials for your professional reviews. You will be the only one to see what’s in your Dossier, and you can keep it for life (however, if you leave the UM System, you will need to contact Interfolio to transfer to a free personal account). 
Your Dossier account includes several features that should make it easier to manage and understand reviews—before, during, and after any formal deadlines. Several of the features duplicate myVITA, however, and are designed primarily for institutions that don’t use the myVITA product. Graduate students may find Dossier most beneficial as they prepare for a job search.

From within your Dossier you can: 

  • Store documents, images, videos, and links to online work in your account
  • Request and store reusable letters of recommendation, submitted directly by the letter writer to Interfolio and kept confidential
  • Organize your materials into “collections” for different purposes—for example, fellowship applications, tenure reviews, or grants
  • Reuse previously submitted/assembled materials when participating in formal reviews through Interfolio
  • Solicit and receive feedback from others on your campus in advance of reviews
