Link to Profile Doesn't Work

Faculty members who have a dot (.) in their NetID username (firstname.lastname) will find that links to their profiles will not work (i.e. profile page will not display). However, the profile can be viewed by searching on the main Faculty Profile (facultyprofile.fairfield.edu) page.

What Information does Faculty Profiles Display

At this time only the following types of data from Digital Measures is displayed on a faculty profile:

  • Overview

    • Biography

    • Teaching Interests

    • Research Interests

  • Teaching

    • Current Term Courses*

      • Data in this field is not user accessible as it is provided directly from Banner
    • Notable Courses Taught

      • User must select course(s) from teaching history (or manually added courses from a previous institution) to be listed).
  • Publications


  • Honors & Awards 



We are aware that your profiles may not display your information in the way that you would like. As such we have started compiling new feature request for future updates to the Faculty Profile website.

This list currently includes the following:

  1. Display of Contracts, Grants, Fellowships and Sponsored Research

  2. Display of Notable Publications

  3. Provide Link to Digital Commons entries

  4. Rank ‘Work History’ entries

  5. Artistic and Professional Performances and Exhibits

  6. Residencies

  7. Provide choice for publication style (i.e. APA, Chicago, etc.)

  8. Scholarship Listing

  9. Allow Linking to online publications

  10. Display Work History

If you want to suggest a new feature not listed here, please go to the ITS Support Portal and submit a service request detailing your request (screen shots are appreciated).

These will provide a more comprehensive listing of your activities in Faculty Profile.  But for now it is suggested that you not try to list these items under the Publications or Honors & Awards fields as you would then be required to correct them once these added fields do become available. Please continue to use the appropriate Digital Measures fields for your data even if they are not displaying at this time.
