When to Use

Use this page to introduce faculty and staff members to students, prospective students, and the wider community.

When to Consider Something Else

Limited Information: If you have minimal information about faculty or staff members, consider using a simpler format, such as a staff directory with brief profiles.

Large Scale: For very large organizations with many faculty or staff members, consider implementing a database-driven directory for easier maintenance.

How to Use

Content Customization: Start by creating a new webpage or content section where you want to display faculty or staff biographical information.

Add Faculty/Staff Information: Replace the sample information (name, title, contact details, bio, etc.) with the specific details of the faculty or staff member you want to feature.

Include an Image: Upload a suitable image of the faculty or staff member and update the image source (URL) 

Customize the Quote: If you want to include a quote, modify the text within the <p> tags in the quote section, and update the attribution accordingly.

Accessibility Check: Ensure the webpage is accessible by adding appropriate alt text for images and following best practices for semantic HTML.

Testing: Before publishing, test the page on different devices and web browsers to ensure it displays correctly and functions as intended.

Accessibility Tips

  • Ensure that all images have appropriate alternative text to provide context for screen readers.
  • Use semantic HTML elements (e.g., <h1>, <p>, <ul>) for improved accessibility.
  • Test the page with keyboard navigation to ensure that all interactive elements are accessible without a mouse.
  • Follow WCAG guidelines for accessibility to make the page inclusive to individuals with disabilities.
