Faculty Information pages give faculty members an easy way way to create a standard and concise information page appropriate for public view. Once a faculty information page has been created, individual faculty members can edit these pages without any special web editing knowledge.
There are a couple ways to use Faculty Information pages:
as a landing page within a department website for individual faculty/staff
as a home page for a faculty member's personal website
1. The standard faculty information page is within the department site.
2. This example allows a faculty member with a personal Drupal web site to use the faculty information page as the home page.
3. Another option allows a faculty member to have a faculty information page while continuing to maintain their personal web site via an existing "~" site.
Contact CIT at firstname.lastname@example.org and put in a request to create a new faculty page. There is extra setup needed to create these pages which is why Webmasters can't create them directly.
The first item on the edit page is the title. All pages must be given a title. By default, the title will also become part of the url of the page. For example, Jane Smith's page titled ‘Jane Smith', would have a default url of
The short description can include a variety of pertinent information. The most typical is: "<Faculty Member> has been a member of the Geneseo faculty since <Year>."
The "Faculty" section is used to include all relevant contact information for the particular faculty member.
This window allows you to upload a headshot. The typical dimensions are: ______
To add pictures:
After uploading the image (using the camera icon), click on the camera icon again and the "image_assist" pop-up window will appear. Make sure the "Insert mode" selected is HTML Code.
Education, Employment, Research, Affiliations and Publications:
Highlight your education, past employment, research, affiliations or any publications you may have. To add another item in any of the categories (other than research) click on the "Add Another Item" button.
You can include up to five of your current classes. Simply enter the department (example: SOCL for Sociology) and the three digit course number. The description will populate itself automatically from the College Bulletin. Faculty members can link their syllabi from an outbox, or it can be uploaded through the Web File Manager.
Left Hot Links commonly include Personal Websites, or any websites of interest. Simply write the name of the site, highlight it, and link them.
Right Area 1:
This area is primarily used to fill in Office Hours and/or Announcements.
Right Area 2:
This area can be used for Interests or anything per the faculty member's discretion.
To save the page, click the ‘Save' button ==>
Typically a faculty template page will be created for the faculty member by CIT or the department webmaster. Webmasters should contact CIT to request access to create Faculty Information pages. Webmasters who create Faculty Information pages can give access to the faculty member to update their page using the following steps:
Click on the "Access control" tab within a given faculty information page.
Collapse "Role Based Access control settings" by clicking on the link.
You should see options under "Grant Update Access". If not click on the link to open those options up.
Enter the username of the person you want to add and click add user (in the "Grant Update Access" area.)
Open "URL Path Settings" and modify the URL path setting to place the the page within the appropriate website:
If the page belongs to a department site, include the department name in the URL. For example, in Paul Schacht's page, the URL path would be english/schacht or english/paul_schacht (or a similar variation).
If the page is the home page for a faculty member's personal Drupal site, please contact CIT for assistance.
