Updating Faculty/Staff Bios

The University provides each faculty and staff member with what has become known internally as a "Faculty/Staff Bio Page." The page is designed to give relevant contact information for each faculty or staff member, along with a photo and an overview of his or her particular expertise. From these pages, faculty and staff may choose to link to personal Web pages, CVs, Blackboard sites, blogs and any other relevant electronic material.

N.B. Before completing this form, please review your current bio page (if available) by completing a keyword search by first and last name at directory.richmond.edu. You need not include information already posted; only additions or updates should be submitted.

The faculty/staff bio pages are maintained centrally. As a result, when a particular person's bio page is updated, the changes are reflected on every Web site where this person's biographic data appears. This is especially helpful for staff and instructors who may work or teach in more than one program or school of the University.

There are a number of available fields on the faculty/staff bio page. Any fields that are left blank will not appear when the bio is published to the Web. NetID and Name fields are required.

If you wish to upload a CV to your faculty/staff bio page, please send it by e-mail attachment it to the Web Manager. CVs will also be shared with the Administrative Coordinator to the Deans.

NetID (what appears before @richmond.edu in your University-issued email address).
You must have a netID to generate a faculty/staff bio page. Contact your School supervisor with questions.

Headshot Policy

The School periodically invites a professional photographer to campus to take headshots of faculty and staff. These headshots are designed to be used on the faculty/staff bio pages. If, for some reason, you have missed these photo sessions and wish to submit a photo for use on your faculty/staff bio page, please keep the following considerations in mind.

Photos should be:

  • 121 x 121 pixels (once cropped)
  • Able to be closely cropped at head & shoulders
  • Color photo, digital preferred
  • No other people in the photograph
  • Sharp focus

Please do not crop or color correct the photo yourself. E-mail the photo, at its highest resolution, to the Graphic Design Coordinator.
