3.1. Faculty/Staff/Student Profiles

There are three ways that users may have their profile information on the School of Business website:

Online (People) Profile Page


Every faculty/staff/Ph.D. student that has a presence on a Business School website hosted in Aurora may have their own people page (online profile). As of January 14, 2016, the new UC People online profile system has replaced the UUP system where a user must update both their basic and extended profiles. Now the content is all consolidated into a single location which the user may update.

Faculty, Staff, and Ph.D. students have basic profile information on the main School of Business website. Full-time MBA students have basic profile information on the MBA website. Faculty/Staff/Ph.D. profiles and user listings should not appear on School sites other than the main site.


The online people profile is a single page profile which brings in information such as name, title, phone number, and email, as well as providing a large white space for profile content, a file area for CVs/Resumes, and a profile image area. When a user has a profile page linked to them, their name will be clickable on user listings, which directs to their people profile page.

Faculty Website


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


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 http://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 communications@business.uconn.edu. 

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

UITS offers training on how to use Aurora.  You may sign up for training at http://aurora.uconn.edu/training/.
