Faculty Profile Webpage Update Process

Faculty pages are a key way to market our programs to prospective students. This is your opportunity to show your best work and get students excited about attending your classes. Faculty pages are not a personal website or an online version of your CV.  We recommend setting up a USF blogs site if you would like to create a personal website and showcase more details about your academic endeavors.  

OMC is establishing a twice a year process to proactively reach out to new and existing faculty members across all the schools and college to ensure faculty information is current. During this process, we will ensure there is a consistent template, voice, and tone across all faculty profile webpages at the university.

Process

Please submit all requests to update/add your faculty profile with one of these forms:

These forms help us organize and keep track of the status of each profile request, and to help us avoid losing any requests through email.

Basic Edits

Basic edits are any edits that do not require copyediting. These include changes to your email, photo, office location, etc.

All requests submitted through the forms are checked for basic edits on a weekly basis (Friday). Any basic edits submitted earlier that week will be published by Friday afternoon.

If we have any questions about your submission, we will reach out via email.

Content requiring copy edits

As part of the new process, your bio, experience, publications, appointments, awards, and any extra unique copy will be sent to an OMC copywriter for copy editing and approval. This is to standardize the format of profiles across the schools/college and ensure the bio matches the voice and tone of the website.

New bios (and other content requiring a copywriter), will be looked at in aggregrate processing twice a year and then on an adhoc basis. Please reach out to Web Services at webservices@usfca.edu if you need more information about the next deadline.

CV

Per the university’s commitment to digital accessibility, if you would like your CV to be posted on your profile, it must be made accessible before you submit it. For more information on digital accessibility, please visit our Accessible Non-HTML Documents resource page. If you have further questions on digital accessibility, please contact webservices@usfca.edu.

Publications

Please only submit your 3-5 most recent or most meaningful publications. This helps us keep the profiles short and focused.
