Faculty and Staff Profile Pages

Faculty and Staff Profile Pages Basic Information

Attention! Any profile that needs changes that includes information from eSIS: name, office location, phone, and e-mail can only be changed by HR.

Profile pages are viewed by visitors using the Directory and People Search.

A profile page is generated automatically upon completion of the hiring process and entry of information in HRS.

  • The original page includes the employee name, department, work location, phone, and e-mail address. 
  • These items must be updated by the Human Resources office.
  • An employee profile page is deleted when their university account is no longer active.

Images are uploaded into CommonSpot by the campus photographer. Employees should schedule an appointment for a profile photo. You may upload your own image, but be sure to follow the size guidelines (200x300).

Pages can be authored by any CommonSpot author but must be approved by Web Administration. You will not see your changes until the page has been approved.

How to Edit a Profile Page

The FacultyStaff subsite has a page for each employee but subsite lists will only display 300, so you need to locate the page using one of three ways: Quick Find, Reports, or Tools.

Use "Tools" in the menu bar to find your page in the FacultyStaff subsite.

Once you have found the page you want to edit, click "View" and select "Work on this Page (All Changes)."

Click the gear, then click "Data."
