    Introduction to MyInfoVault For Faculty

    MyInfoVault is the official merit and promotion system for the University of California, Davis. It is a web-based system and database designed to streamline the academic review process by reducing redundant data entry, allowing remote review of packets, and reusing data for many purposes. This is a very basic, introductory course intended to help faculty get started using the program.

    MyInfoVault is a useful tool to:

    • Produce and keep up to date CV’s and NIH Biosketch forms
    • Store data related to publications, service, grants/contracts, honors, etc
    • Link to PubMed for easy access of publications

    This course will also introduce you to the requirements for merits and promotions at the University of California Davis by:

    • Providing merit and promotion toolkits
    • Understanding MIV data storage through an interactive MIV guide.

    Presented by:  Academic Personnel

    Audience:  All Faculty

    The date of this workshop has passed. We hope to offer it again soon.

    New Faculty Workshop - Jumpstart your academic career

    New! Speed Mentoring component added to this workshop.

    For new faculty, navigating the culture of UC Davis Health, their department, work and life can be overwhelming. Mentoring relationships can help. Our speed mentoring session will provide participants the opportunity to speak directly with senior faculty about their careers.

    This workshop will also help faculty identify the skills needed for their continued academic success and will provide them with the resources available to support their work here at UC Davis Health. Important information will also be provided in the areas of teaching, research, faculty development, faculty mentoring and retirement planning.

    This event is different from the new faculty workshop that is held on the Davis campus. The workshop in Davis will not provide you with information you will need to know that is unique to the UC Davis Health.

    Audience:  All new faculty are encouraged to attend, especially if you work on the Sacramento campus.

    The date of our Fall 2020 session is still to be determined.
