Academic Profile Project

Michigan State University’s Academic Profile (AP) (originally called the Faculty Information Tool) is an institutional web-based application used to gather, in a single system of record, the professional activities and accomplishments of its academic staff in the areas of instruction, research, service and administration. The data is/will be used to support activities such as annual review; reappointment, promotion, and tenure; production and maintenance of website profiles; and institutional reporting. University-wide implementation of Academic Profile will take place between 2014-2019. For more information, visit or contact

Please note: The ADAPP Project formally ended in 2014. Grant initiatives continue, having been abosrbed by various offices on campus, including the Office of Academic Human ResourcesOffice for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives, the Office of Planning and Budget.
