Status of department site migration

The new website launch in April 2020 was "phase 1" of our rollout process. "Phase 2" is the migration of all department and subsite content into our new website. As of June 2020, we are approximately halfway complete with this work and intend to finish by the end of summer 2020. Please contact Chris Jones at cljones3@vcu.edu with any specific questions regarding the import of content from your department.

Access to edit faculty and staff profiles

We have finalized a workflow on the site that allows users to edit their own faculty or staff profiles and allows a department editor to mass-edit any profiles within the department. More information about this process is available on our guide to edit faculty and staff profiles. Additional info about the "directory" content type is also available on the "directory" content type page.

Department access to news/events content type
