Adding a Faculty Profile

For new Faculty

  1. Go to your department's Faculty & Office Hours page.
  2. Click Add in the Edit Console.
  3. Choose Profile from the list of available content types.
  4. Enter a Display Name for the profile. This should be the Faculty member's name, as they wish it to appear on their department site.
  5. Begin typing the Faculty member's email address in the User field. Select their name when it appears in the list of options.
  6. Scroll down to the Dynamic Features section and check the Course Catalog checkbox.

This is all of the information that you are required to enter to create a new Faculty profile, though you may wish to add more information, as described below. The User and Course Catalog sections are not strictly required, but are good information to add about Faculty teaching at Middlebury as they will pull in contact information from the Directory and course information from Banner.

For Existing Faculty

If the Faculty member's profile already exists elsewhere on our site and you would like to add it to your site you should follow these instructions, rather than creating a new profile.

  1. Find the profile and contact that department's coordinator to have them grant you access to the profile.
    1. They should click Edit at the bottom of the profile.
    2. Then in the Who can Edit or Delete this content section under Individuals add you.
  2. Now that you can edit the profile, do so by clicking Edit at the bottom of the profile.
  3. Click the Pages section of the edit form to expand it.
  4. Click the Add button.
  5. Find your department's Faculty & Office Hours page in the site tree and click on it.
  6. Click Select in the right pane.
  7. Click the Save button at the bottom of the editing form.
