How to Request Changes or Additions to the Department Website

+Faculty and Staff Profiles


Employee profiles are linked from the People item on the site’s main menu. 

Since we have a large department and a big website to maintain, we limit the people listings to employees. 

Eligibility/Profile Examples 


The following categories of employees are eligible for profiles on the department website. Click the links to see examples of the listings and detailed profiles. 

* In certain circumstances, the department chair may approve detailed profiles for employees in these categories. 

  • Academic staff working for research labs are not eligible for profiles on the department website. Please contact your PI to see if you are eligible for a profile on the PI’s lab website. 
  • Students who are not employees of the department or the department’s research labs are not eligible for profiles on the department site. 
  • Alumni are not eligible for profiles on the department website. 


Publications Lists on Faculty Profiles 

A detailed faculty profile contains a list of publications. 

We offer two options: 

  1. A link to the faculty member’s Google Scholar profile.
  2. A full list of publications.

Since publication listings constantly change, where possible, we create an automatic data feed from the faculty member’s lab website. The data feed mirrors the publications list; when the publications list is updated on the lab website, the changes appear on the department site. 

In some cases, a live data feed is not possible. We have found problems with lab websites hosted by Google or Wix. 

If the automatic data feed cannot be created, the faculty member will be responsible for providing updated publications lists in a Microsoft Word document. We find it easiest to just delete the existing list and replace it, so please send the full list.  

New Faculty Profiles 

Faculty profiles are created as part of the new employee onboarding process. If you have questions about the profile, please use the form below. 

Request Updates to Existing Profiles

Please use this form to submit requests to have your own profile updated.


+Requesting Non-profile Content Additions and Changes 

Please use this form to submit requests to have materials added to the site or updated. 

The form is used to maintain an ongoing list of requests, and to make sure the requests are accessible in case the content editor is out of the office. 

Some requests may take longer to fulfill than others, depending on workload and on whether the request needs to go through an approval process:  

  • If you propose adding a new page or pages, or a substantial change to existing pages, the request will take longer. These requests are generally held until semester breaks. 
  • If you propose changes to the pages in the Academic sections, the changes will need to be reviewed and approved by Student Services staff. 
+Reporting Errors

If you spot an error on a page that is not your own profile, please use this form to report it. 

We will consult with the page’s Subject Matter Expert before we make the change. 

+Suggesting News Items

We share department news through four communications channels: 

  • Department mailing lists 
  • Department newsletter 
  • Social media accounts (Facebook and Twitter) 
  • News items on the homepage in the right column 

Please use this form to learn more, and to submit your news item for consideration.
