Faculty Profile Instructions

Making Your Faculty Profile

Faculty Profiles: What Do We Want?

All profiles will have the same basic items (see below for a list.) The basics are name, title, education, narrative, photo, and an edited cv/resume. Also, optional items are encouraged if they are available (see below for ideas.) We intend your profile to be Google-friendly. Google loves details, don't worry about lengthy content if it is pertinent.

Please include: In addition to the basic items, as an option, please include in your narrative a statement about your teaching philosophy or style, or your curriculum vision, especially if you feel your contributions have made a difference in your program's excellence and/or distinctiveness. This is a chance for your voice to be heard.

Please do not include: Please note, we reserve the right to edit any content. Please do not include personal details. Service and professional references should relate to your academic expertise and endeavors, enhancement of or participation in campus life, or be closely related to the Chaminade mission.

Where's the link to your profile? On the Chaminade website, all faculty profile links will be listed on the Faculty List page. As Division web areas are created and edited, additional links to your profile will be on your Division's pages. You will have one profile up, but it could eventually be linked from several areas of the Chaminade website.

Photo: We would like your profile to have a photo. If a professional quality photo is unavailable, PLEASE send us all your information anyway and we will start with that.

Where to Send Your Info and Updates:

Please email word files and digital photo files of your faculty profile information or updates to:

Optional Items to Include in Your Profile

Please include highlights of your career and scholarship. These areas are editable and flexible. Google loves details. We would love to put up your published articles in peer-reviewed journals, book / chapter publications, research topics, any conference presentations that you have made, and any professional awards and grants you have received. If you have developed a lab website, a website related to your scholarship, published a great blog relevant to your scholarship, or anything else that is online relating to your career and scholarship, we will put in that link. If your expertise is specifically teaching, since we are a teaching university, please include any highlights, such as program or curriculum development, program advising, mentoring, etc.

Please keep areas as current/ relevant as possible.

Examples of additional topics to include that may be pertinent to your career:

  • Website link
  • Research Topics
  • Expertise
  • Publications
  • Grants
  • Awards
  • Conference Presentations (within last 5-10 years)
  • Workshop Sessions Presented (within last 5-10 years)
  • Professional Service
  • Professional Organizations
  • Professional Activities
  • Community Service
  • Partnerships, Projects, Organizing, etc. that relates to career

Note: These are examples for topics. You may have another idea of how to title or categorize your scholarship or expertise, and we can work with that.

Hints on Getting Started

Start with your latest C.V. or resume in a word file.

  • Edit out anything you do not want to see published on the web.
  • Edit out anything very old or dated, leave in older material if it is relevant or exceptional. Ten years is beginning to get old.
  • Take a look at the sample profiles (links above) for an idea of what your profile will look like.
  • Write a narrative of 200-300 words that is a good representation of the high points of your professional experience.
  • Check to see that you have included all basic items in your document.
  • Organize your additonal CV items under the suggested optional topics, or make new topics if this works better for your content.
  • Find a great digital photo of yourself if one is available (photo optional)
  • Email the word file and photo to us.

What Not to Include in Your Profile

At this time, we are not publishing personal details in the narrative or profile, such as family, pets, etc. or information not relating to your career or scholarship, such as personal hobbies.

Photo

If you have a good, professional-looking photo we will use it. We periodically will try to get a few more official portrait shoots scheduled with a professional photographer.
