The “Profile” content type can be used to create a profile for a staff or faculty member. With it, you can display a person’s position, contact information, campus location, and photo. There is also space to put in biographical information and related links. Please note that prior to creating a faculty or staff profile, you must create a unique webpage where this profile will live. If you have any questions about how to do this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
