Faculty Insight empowers faculty to uncover funding opportunities and identify subject matter experts at Clemson and provides them with a comprehensive, editable pre-populated research profile.

Faculty Insight replaces the previous Research Expertise Discovery Suite (REDS) with new features. It was developed in partnership with Academic Analytics and reflects the campus-wide need for increased data transparency and tools to foster interdisciplinary collaboration.

This next generation REDS site contains data from multiple sources for a more accurate and complete view of Clemson research. In addition to being pre-populated with Academic Analytics data, the site has been augmented with grant data from Clemson’s Office of Sponsored Programs, and faculty now have an easy interface with which to edit their own profiles, including adding new activity and editing existing activity.

In addition to discovering institutional expertise, Faculty Insight provides targeted funding opportunities for specific faculty and by keyword search. Faculty profile keywords are matched to funding opportunity data from a third-party funding database. Grant opportunities are updated daily and contain roughly 40,000 open funding opportunities from more than 10,000 public and private entities.

Faculty Insight Academic Analytics is receptive to feedback on this product and will be rolling out enhancements based on this feedback in the coming year.
