1. Posters are always a key component to promote your events. While it is not uncommon to find a board filled with scraps of paper which make audience hard to read and clean. For instance, please look at the rendering below of an average bulletin board.

1. 海报一直以来是推广活动的重要方式。然而一些被纸张覆盖的展板随处可见,不方便学生浏览和清洁。例如,请看以下例子


2. What you might quickly notice is that the various items on the board are crowded and overlapping. This is the way most bulletin boards look, and the “feel” of a board like this is one of chaos and confusion.

2. 可以发现,上面都很拥挤并且覆盖了其他的海报。这是大多数公告板的样子,像这样的板子给人感觉是混乱无序的。

When a new faculty comes to the Kean USA or Wenzhou-Kean University, the first challenge is to know the class schedule, class roaster, class assignment, and basic information.

This is the guide for the "Basic" for the Class Preparation of Kean /WKU new faculty members.


1. First thing first, "Please secure your Kean ID/PWD".


- Kean HR / IT department will let you have the Kean ID/PWD.  Please take and keep it. And secure it as your whole administrative affairs. 


2. Go to Kean Wise!

Kean Wise is the integrative academic affairs system of Kean USA and Wenzhou-Kean University. A new teacher must use the Kean Wise to complete affairs affairs works such as "registration, advisement, class affairs, final grading".

To go to Kean Wise, the basic way is to go  and click QuickLinks. Then, you can choose the KeanWise.


Or, you can directly go to Kean Wise system via direct link:


3. At Kean Wise, Please go to Faculty Menu. And Login with your Kean ID/Password!




4. Faculty Menu: Mainly a Kean / WKU faculty member would use the Faculty Menu - Class Schecule



For example, if a faculty wants to know the newly assigned Class schedule, please click the Class Schdule!


When you choose the Term (Academic year, Term, and Campus), you can find your assigned classes and sections! 

You can find out your class name, Title, class schedule, time, class locations!

If you click the (blue) class name and title, you can see more detail information your class!


If you get to know the class schedule, please allocate your classes in the weekly planner. And try to organize the your office hours!


Probably you can use this weekly class calendar!


After allocating your class schedules on the weekly calendar, you can fill out your Office hours in the calendar!


5. Inputting Office Hours


Office hours are one of the most important services for students! All Kean faculty members are required providing the Office Hours (generally 8 hours / week, 4 days / week; In 2021 Fall, Five hours / three days).

Go to Kean Wise Faculty Menu, and Click the Office hours!


You can create or modify your office hours!

You can inpur your office hours at Kean Wise!

Please be suare you input the right information! You can use the office hours for many service works such as advisement, student services, student meeting, and many acacemic affairs!



6. Class Roaster


If you wants to know the enrolled students at his/her class (sections), please click the Class roaster!


Selecte the academic Term! (e.g. Fall 2021 Wenzhou)

Choose a section, and submit!

Voila, you can find all your enrolled students in your class/section!

You need to download the list, and use the roaster for your "Attendance, Progress, and Grading" works in your own way!


This the rough guide of "How to use Kean Wise!" for Class Affairs!

If you have any further question, please contact your senior faculty member, program coordinaotr, or any Kean Community member.

We will serve for you!

How to Apply for Travel Expenses in WKU as an international faculty! 

Since 2020 under the pandemic, WKU Finance department (Director Sailing) and WKU Admins changed the policy of application of cost/expenses. 


The New policy urges that individual faculty members should apply for the travel or the benefit expenses by using the WKU cost center system. 

Until the policy can be improved or changed, we - WKU international faculty members need to apply for travel or benefits expenses. 




Here are my experiences and guides when you apply for Quarantine expenses.  


2021. 09.23: Quarantine Expenditure Application


1. Go to  and click my wku

You must login with your WKU ID/PWD (Not Kean ID/PWD). 



2. Go to Expense Claim

4. Click Language: English, And check your Login Name


5. Go to Business Claim Center - Expense - Expense Claim and Click it. 

6. Click "Create Document" 


7. Double Click Emergency Items


8. Write Description, Add Items. and Choose Office of HR as Budget Holder! 



9. Type in and Search "Epidemic Prevention and Control Project" & Save Draft


10. Link with Invoice


Please prepare all your invoices, Receipt, and Fapiao (Chinese Domestic Invoice)

Click Invoice Item by Item


Please check your invoices: 


For Chinese Receipt (Fapiao), there are three types of invoice you can choose: 

Special VAT; General VAT (offline); Electronic General VAT Invoice: 


For detail Invoice Related Information, please see this file from WKU Finance:

If Everything gets input, Please click Save and Invoice Examination!

On Nov. 24, 2020, Kean USA Office of the Provost / Vice President for Academic Affairs announced the "Faculty Activity Reporting: Initial Completion at Faculty180 - the Online Platform of Interfolio. 

Click for the full message. 


Dear Colleagues:

Thank you for your commitment to delivering an excellent academic experience to our students during very challenging semesters.

 Kean University has adopted Interfolio as its faculty management system. Interfolio is a secure, online collaboration platform that provides customizable tools to manage all of the documents, workflows, data, committees, communication, and outcomes associated with review-based academic decisions. The first module being launched is Faculty Activity Reporting (Faculty 180) which is an online platform for faculty activity reporting that will assist in accreditation, other reporting analytics, and feed into all faculty evaluation processes (Retention and Tenure, Promotion, A328, Sabbatical, and Lecturer Evaluations). Please carefully complete the Faculty Activity Reporting module.

 Some additional benefits of this module include:

·         the creation of a central repository for current and past teaching, scholarship, and service contributions

·         the ability to create a personal vita template

·         the opportunity to enhance collaboration among fellow faculty

Resources and Support

Please click on this link to access Faculty180. This link will also be posted on our Interfiolio web page under Academic Affairs in the future. This will take you to your Interfolio Dashboard, where you will find the Faculty180 tab on the left side. If you have issues signing in, please contact the Interfolio Help Desk at

Here you will find a self-guided training link through Interfolio University. Please complete the training as soon as possible.

We will be hosting a virtual university-wide faculty training session for Faculty180 on Thursday, December 3, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can join the Zoom session using this link. If you cannot attend the training, the recording will be available on your Interfolio Dashboard.

Also available to you is a free training Faculty Activity Reporting webinar posted on Interfolio’s help page: FAR Training Webinar

Thank you,

Hi, Joy and Maria,

    I am trying to get familiar with the Interfolio and update my information. From the notice form VPAA office, the training of Faculty 180 is scheduled at 3:30pm on December 3, which is 4:30 am in China. WKU faculty and staff have to watch the recording of the training. The notice indicated that recording will be available in the Dashboard. I did not see a tab for training recording in my Dashboard. Will it be available after the training?

    What is the timeline for faculty to complete the Faculty 180?

    What platform will be used for lecturer evaluation that can pull information from Faculty 180?



The PURPOSE of Faculty Activity Report at 'CLOUD' service. 


Every year, Kean Faculty Members generally prepare more than 300 pages of Reappointment Application Packages that include Academic CV, Profile Information, Publications, and all relevant Faculty Activities. What if we can make the ARTP processes simple and easier at online with higher security? That is the idea of Kean's 'Going to Cloud' initiative of ARTP affairs. 


Aligning with the transformation to Online Faculty Activity Report for Appointment, Reappointment, Promotion, Tenure, Promotion (ARTP) and HR affairs, WKU CBPM Management, Global Business, and Marketing (MGM) faculty members proactively complying with the movement.


WKU VPAA Office guided us to complete the FAR Initial completion by End of 2020 Fall Semester ( December . 18, 2020) based on the communication with Kean USA. 



WKU CBPM MGM faculty members try to complete the initial inputs of FAR via Interfolio Faculty 180 platform by Dec. 18, 2020. 


Faculty Activity Report via InterFolio Faculty 180 Platform
 (Due, Dec. 18, 2020)


But the Due date for CBPM faculty members was postponed until the end of December 2020 at the CBPM faculty meeting on Dec. 08 because of time pressure of final grading.

2020.12.19: Faculty Activity Report (or Faculty 180)  Online Course Completion 

Faculty Activity Report: Training (Interfolio)



Key Terms: 


Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR)

Also known as Faculty180, Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR) is Interfolio's module that collects validated faculty data sets for accreditation, compliance, and seeing the full picture of faculty contributions at your institution.


An activity is anything a faculty member does that can be tracked as a record of their career for data collection and use cases like promotion, tenure, or annual reviews, grant applications, or supplementing public facing profiles. Generally, this describes some type of teaching, scholarship, service, or professional development – the core activities of university faculty.


A collection of sections to track data. There are two types of forms, profile and activity forms.

Profile Form

The Profile Form is the form that tracks personal information related to faculty user, such as contact information. Faculty control (most of) the data in this form through the FAR interface.

The Profile Form is always available under Profile on the navigation bar.

Activity Form

The Activity Form is the form that faculty enter their activities into during the year. It's configurable by an administrator at the client side, and is composed of sections.

There is one Activity Form that is always available under Activities on the navigation bar.


A section is a type of faculty activity information that a university wants to track, such as teaching, scholarship, or service. Sections are made up of fields.

Activity Classification

Activity Classifications are additional metadata tags that allow units to supplement the fields with other data they want to track. They can be used in multiple sections and can be set to only show for particular units. These classifications can appear on reports or CV templates or be used to filter a report or CV template down to the desired information before it is generated. They are also used in accreditation reports. Examples of Activity Classifications include Committee Role, Book Type, and Scholarly Type.

Vita Template

Vita Templates display the output of the faculty's activity reporting. They are a collection of sections from both the profile and activity forms.

Initiated Activity Input Form

While faculty members always have access to the Activities form on their menu toolbar, Administrators may ask for updates periodically. To make that easy for faculty members, they initiate a period of input for a particular time period. When a form is used as part of this request for information, that is the initiated activity input form. It will be linked from the Faculty Member’s Action Items until it is either completed or the period for input has ended.

Faculty Account

Full/part time faculty and, if applicable, professional staff who teach, have access to input data on the Profile and Activity Input Forms. (This may also include Deans or other higher level academic administrative positions.)

Support Account

Access to assist faculty in the process of data input on the Profile and Activity Input Forms and/or to run reports. This type of account is intended for users who serve in a support role, such as a member of the Institutional Implementation Team, IT resources, administrative assistants, student workers, etc.

Unit Administrator

Unit Administrators will generally have access to particular administrative functions for their specific unit.

Administrative rights can be added to either a support account or a faculty account.

System Administrator

The highest level administrator is responsible for the database configuration and general upkeep. Software administrators have the top permissions in the system. 



Profile Input:

Please input all your personal profile information. 


(Profile example #1) Personal Information


(Profile example #2) Work Experience;  Degrees




Activity Input:

Quarantine Process


1. When you get off from the Airplane, You will be guided to an assigned Quarantine place. 

2. You cannot choose the place, but the Chinese Health Authority will guide you. 

Example of Flying to Quarantine.


3. Once you get into the quarantine place, you cannot get out of the place for 14 days. You must stay in a hotel room.

4. There will be very little accessibility of outdoor activities such as shopping or communication because you're a potential "Virus". :) 


8AM and 2PM, You must measure your body temperature and report it to a WeChat group that controls your quarantine. 



5. Quarantine expenses will be fully reimbursed by WKU. Please take the Fapioa (official receipt) from Quarantine place. Please show this to Quarantine authority to get Fapiao for WKU. 

6. You need to complete many documents and app requirements such as Zhejiang customs. Please be patient and please comply with the authority. Fortunately, Chinese authorities will be kind and gentle to guide you. 

8. Meals will be served by Authority (there will be limited alternatives if you can order external foods via app under the authority's permission). :)

We need to confirm with the center every Monday. We will keep you updated of the opening time for next week.

  3. I have attached the photo of the building. You can take a taxi to the center and ask for reimburement from our university. Please remember to keep the receipt.
  4. The center is at the second floor of the building and you are required to take photo at the first floor through a bilingual self-service machine.
  5. You may need to pay 30 rmb for the photo and get Fapiao from the reception desk for reimbursment (you can pay it thourgh wechat or alipay, and please keep the spare photos as we will need it for residence permit).
  6. Tell them you are from WKU and you dont have to pay for the medical check.
  7. Things to bring: original passport, green code, face mask, WKU ID card (no worries for the card if you are going with Jerry). NO breakfast.
