Requesting a Staff Bio

The University provides each faculty and staff member with a 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.

There are a number of available fields on the bio page. Any fields that are left blank will not appear when the bio is published to the Web. Required fields are indicated in bold.

If you wish to upload a CV to your bio page, please send it by e-mail attachment it to the Web Manager. Faculty should use the Bio Update form to update an existing bio.

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.
