  4. Once on your profile page, click the “Edit” button in the upper right hand side of your profile page.
  5. Editing profile fields
    • Name, department, title, and contact info are pulled from InsideState. To edit this information, click the "Edit Contact Information on InsideState" button. This is updated automatically in an overnight feed.
    • Biographical, work, and research information is self-entered. Enter basic biographical information in the Short Biography block.

    • Title field: The title field can be overwritten in Drupal. If your title is not displaying the same as it is on InsideState, please contact web support.
    • Photos: Employee photos for the website need to be professional done. A portrait studio is available on campus.
  6. Saving the page: From dropdown next to "Change to:" choose one of the following statuses:
    • Ready to Review: If it is ready to be published.
    • In progress: If you want to hold on publishing or are still editing.

Important Considerations

  • It’s vital you select a "Profile Heading" as that will tag you to the Our People pages under the heading you choose.
    • If you are unsure what to set for a profile heading, take a look at your primary department's Our People page and see what your colleagues are using and assign yourself appropriately. You can also contact your department web editors for help.
  • If you choose to include a portfolio or website within your profile, be sure to include http:// or https:// at the start of url e.g:
  • Contact information updates (mentioned in #5 above) can take anywhere from one to two business days.
  • More information about profiles and directories.
