My unit would like to assign a staff member to maintain or add content to our faculty’s profiles. How can we do that?

We will be happy to set up a user account for one or more “unit delegates” who will be able to view or add/edit content in profiles of faculty affiliated with their unit. There are a variety of roles that may be requested:

  • Editor of Persons—able to add content (photos, links to social media, research statements, keywords, etc.) to faculty profiles
  • Editor of Research Output—able to add/edit publication records
  • Editor of Activities—able to add/edit activities records (board memberships, peer review, invited lectures, etc.)
  • Editor of Press/Media—able to add/edit press/media records
  • Editor of Prizes—able to add/edit honors and recognition records
  • Reporter—view-only access that allows for filtering and exporting lists
  • All of the above

Multiple individuals may be assigned as delegates for a unit. For example, the editor of research output role might be requested for a unit librarian, and the editor of press/media role might be requested for a communications official.

To set up an account for your unit, please email irc-help@illinois.edu with

  • the name and NetID of the intended unit delegate(s) and
  • an acknowledgement from your unit’s executive officer indicating their approval of the request.
