All faculty websites are automatically created upon employment with the University. The website homepage is pre-populated with information from the USI Phone Directory.
You may add additional information to your faculty website by filling in content areas and creating subpages.
This does NOT replace Blackboard for course management, but is simply a faculty member's professional web presence at the University.
What is the URL?
Faculty websites are organized by USI Username. URLs look like this:
How do I access my website and can others update my website for me?
Only faculty members have access to their website. Permissions cannot be set up for other users to make updates for you.
To update your faculty website, log in to the Umbraco CMS by going to faculty.usi.edu/umbraco/
Use your USI username and password.
What if I need website access for my other sites using HTML?
Some faculty members may have course materials, photo galleries or mini-websites that are not accessible with Blackboard. Access can be given with drive mapping to your web folder. The URL to the content will change and will look like this:
Links can be created to these websites from the Umbraco Faculty website or the direct URL can be used.
We recommend this only for faculty familiar with building websites with HTML.
