Faculty pages contain basic contact information, as well as the option to include more detailed biographical information and the ability to upload images, CVs and resume files.

Faculty pages, like Staff pages, are automatically included on the sub-site's People page, as well as on the full Faculty and Staff Directory pages, as soon as they are published (and removed when unpublished).
