Faculty/Staff Profile Overview

FSW grants faculty and staff the right to create personal profile sites within the limit of available resources. Access to the FSW shared web server resources is a privilege, and it is provided with an expectation of responsible and acceptable use.

Guidelines for Use

  • Full-time and part-time faculty and staff are authorized users of the Directory Profile system. Basic directory information about the faculty or staff member is automatically provided in the system. The faculty or staff member is responsible for adding any additional content, and will do so by logging into the system with his/her FSW User ID and Password.
  • Profile pages may not be used for commercial purposes. Materials or services may not be offered for sale through the site, nor should links to external commercial websites be published.
  • Due to both privacy and copyright concerns, uploaded content (such as images or contact information) should pertain only to the individual faculty or staff member. Use of photographs or video in which other individuals appear requires written permission and a release form on file with the college.
  • Course materials (such as syllabi, PowerPoints, etc.) should not be included on the Profile pages. Canvas pages are the standard delivery method for course-related content.
  • Authorized users will abide by institutional policies along with applicable local, state and federal laws.
  • Authorized users are responsible for the accuracy of the information published on their personal pages.
  • Users must adhere to legal and ethical standards governing copyright and intellectual property.
