More info here

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

Staff pages, like Faculty 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People page, as well as on the full Faculty and Staff Directory pages, as soon as they are published (and removed when unpublished).


Important Notes

  1. Complete and Current: Be sure to update phone changes, etc.
  2. No page, No search: Faculty members without pages will not be found in a search within the CMS (unless separately listed in other content)
  3. Multiple entries necessary: Faculty teaching in different departments must have separate pages for each department site

Creating a Staff page

  • Prefix: Select from the following options:
    Dr., Mr., Mrs., Ms.
  • First Name: (Required)
  • Last Name: (Required)
  • Suffix: Generational titles, academic credentials, and professional credentials should be entered in the 'Suffix' field. Abbreviate using a period after each element in the abbreviation but no internal spaces. (For example, enter 'Ph.D.', not 'PhD'.) Separate multiple suffixes with commas.
    • Psy.D., L.C.S.W.

    • Ph.D., J.D.

    • Sr., M.F.A.

  • Department Head: Check this box if this person is the head of their department. If checked, the person's name and title will be listed at the top of department's People page. Only one Department Head will be listed for each group.
  • Staff Title: (Required) This is basically a job title or position. For example, "Reference Librarian", "Administrative Assistant", etc.
  • Primary Duties: This optional field may be used to highlight certain areas of your work, beyond your official title. For example, a Title of "Academic Advisor" may have a Primary Duties value of "Serving students with last names A-L".
    • NOTE: This information will only appear in the department context, not the full USM People listing. If blank, it will not appear at all.
  • Photo: The placeholder image may be replaced by clicking Remove, then uploading the faculty image
    See Portrait Image Dimensions, below
  • Office Address: (Required) Street/Office address
  • Contact Phone: (Required) Full phone number, including zip code.

Add a Portrait Image

Images on faculty/staff bio pages must be at least 148 x 178 px (vertical) and no larger than 2 MB.

Images larger than 148x178 will be resized and cropped to fit.

Portrait, not Landscape

Images larger than 148x178 will first be resized down to 178 pixels high. If the resulting image is then wider than 148 pixels, the extra content on the right side of the image will be cropped (cut off)
