Wayne State University's Office of the Provost utilizes the SmarthPath workflow system from MountainPass to electronically process faculty related workflows. SmartPath improves the accuracy and quality of required documentation, reduces the length of time needed to process workflows (compared to paper) and increases the overall efficiency of the faculty administrative processes. 

Faculty related workflows currently processed in SmartPath for the whole University include:

  • New faculty appointments, including full-time and fractional faculty
  • Renewals for attachments and term-appointed faculty
  • Promotion and tenure requests

Additionally, the School of Medicine utilizes SmartPath to complete the following workflows:

  • Voluntary Faculty Appointments
  • Selective Salary
  • Onboarding
  • OEO for non-tenure, non-tenure track faculty
  • Curriculum Vitaes
