Faculty Websites

Personal websites are only offered on the School of Business domain (e.g., yourname.business.uconn.edu) for School of Business faculty members.

Use

 

Faculty websites are appropriate for faculty members who wish to include more in depth web presence with information beyond their online profile or including multiple pages of information.

Faculty websites have always been maintained by the individual faculty members. However, the University and the School do provide the technical framework and support that faculty can take advantage of, namely: Aurora, which is a UITS-supported content management system based on WordPress. For more information on Aurora, see aurora.uconn.edu.

Setting up your site

School of Business faculty may request an Aurora account either at http://aurora.uconn.edu/request-an-account/ or by emailing business.communications@uconn.edu.

Once the site is set up, you will have full Administrative access to manage your content.

Editing your site

UITS offers resources and training on how to use Aurora. 

Launching your site

Any faculty website on the School of Business domain will have the URL format of [first initial][lastname].business.uconn.edu.
