Interfolio for TAP

Interfolio is a new system Pace will be using for Tenure and/or Promotion (TAP) starting this year 2018-2019.

The Tenure and Promotion committees review dossiers on Interfolio. Paper dossiers are no longer required unless specified by your Dean. Guidelines for eDossier preparation can be found on the Provost’s Page on the Pace University Website. If you are planning to go up for Tenure and/or Promotion and need assistance formatting your eDossier, please contact Ally Kimmel at or (212) 346-1471. 

eDossier setup and sharing will be reviewed at the annual Tenure and Promotion Workshop and at the Academic Portfolio Workshop.

For a full Timetable of Procedures for Tenure and Promotion, please refer to the Provost Page.
