Profiles in My profiles fall under two broad categories:


"Your Profiles" lists profiles for which you are the owner. These profiles can only be created by you and edited by you.
Editors for these profiles can be assigned using the Toolbox.

"Editor For" lists all profiles for which you have been assigned an editor.

If your profile is not in the system, you would have the option to create your faculty and other profiles. View Create New Profile for more information.

Only Deans, chairs and people on the research staff will be able to add backup emails.

You will need to add one so there is a backup to approve the submission if you are out.

This is used as a safety net so at least two people know about a grants submission.

Each profile has different modes it can be worked on. These options are available only if a user is logged in and is the owner/editor for the profile.

Faculty Profile is built to allow TCU faculty to create an individual web page. Aside from the Core Sections/Data Elements and or Subsections there are data elements that would be necessary for the automatic generation of Biosketches and CV's.
Faculty Profiles also gives an option to include descriptive links to labs or other group web pages along with keywords eliminating the need to create separate profiles for them if not required and yet making them searchable.

Here is a sample faculty profile. The core sections for a faculty profile are presented by default. New Section can be customized and added by using the Toolbox.
