Did you know that every Ithaca College faculty member has a web page? In fact, every IC employee — faculty and staff — has a basic profile that is automatically generated as part of our directory system.
When expanded with additional content, these profiles can play an important role in helping our professors promote their research, their teaching methods and coursework, and often serve as a valuable resource for students. Staff members can provide the campus community with info about their professional skills and experience, the work they do for the college, or anything else they wish to share.
Those profiles now mark the final chunk of legacy web content to be migrated from our old Web Profile Manager (WPM) system onto the new Drupal-powered website launched in 2018. When this work is complete, it will mean all our web pages come from the same place. Finally!
What’s this mean for you?
Well, if you’ve never touched your faculty or staff profile: nothing, really. Your title and contact info — office location, email, and telephone number — on file through our Human Resources systems will still automatically populate your profile.
