Web Profiles

Works can automatically populate web profiles!

Use Works data to update faculty web profile pages, saving time and reducing redundant data entry. Once gathered, your faculty activity data is always available in one place.

A new Drupal module is available to support departments and colleges in populating web profile pages with activities and accomplishments entered into Works. Developed and maintained by the Provost Office Web Communications Team, this module is now available for all interested units.
