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People page, as well as on the full Faculty and Staff Directory pages, as soon as they are published (and removed when unpublished).
