Faculty Content Type

The Faculty Content Type is used for creating a directory of profiles for faculty members.

Use Locations

The Faculty Content Types are displayed in the following areas:

  • Faculty Archive Page
  • Faculty Detail Pages
  • Faculty Profile Page Component
  • News Detail – lists faculty members that are tagged with the news item.

Faculty can be tagged with the following Taxonomies (Taxonomies marked with an asterick * are filterable on the archive page):

  • Faculty Role – the position that a faculty member fulfills, such as Professor or Research Associate.
  • Research Areas* – an area of research the faculty member is associated with, such as Neuroscience or Systems Biology.
  • Affiliated Center* – a center or institute that the faculty member is associated with. Each Affiliated Center should have a URL that links to the center’s website.
  • Faculty Type* – refers to the role the Faculty member fulfills, such as Teaching or Research.

Note: members of the Tsinghua Faculty do not show up in the archive page unless Tsinghua Faculty is explicitly set as the filter.


Adding New Taxonomy Types

You can add a new category to the existing taxonomies by first clicking on Faculty and selecting the desired taxonomy from the expanded area / flyover menu. On the taxonomy page, you can use the fields on the left to create a new category.

Alternatively, you can quick add a taxonomy using the Taxonomy box in the right hand sidebar menu on the edit page of any Faculty Profiles.

Note: When adding a new Affiliated Center, there is an additional field to set a URL for the center.
