This post will cover the two types of CAES personnel profile pages:
Basic Personnel Directory Page
Every CAES employee or collaborator entered in the CAES Personnel Database will have a basic profile page available through the CAES Personnel Directory. The URL for a basic profile page will always begin with www.caes.uga.edu/about/personnel/.
In addition to providing profile data for the CAES websites, the CAES Personnel Database also supplies information for the searchable UGA Extension Personnel Directory and county websites.
Example of basic profile page:
Nick Place – CAES Dean and Director
The basic profile pages are dynamically generated by the website when a new record is added the CAES Personnel Database.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the CAES Personnel Database?
The CAES Personnel Database contains information about CAES and UGA Extension employees and collaborators to keep our online directories up to date and to maintain information not tracked through the University of Georgia.
Who manages these records?
Each department/unit has data custodians who enter new employees, approve changes, edit profiles, and mark employees as “retired” or “inactive” once they leave employment.
How do I update the information on this page?
Each employee is responsible for requesting changes to their profile. To do so, navigate to the CAES Personnel Directory, find your personnel directory page and click on the link to request changes. You will be required to login using your UGA MyID. Once you have submitted the request, your data custodian will approve the change.
Why do some personnel directory pages have a button linking to a full profile?
Most faculty members have a full profile page located on their designated departmental website. These pages are managed by the department’s web content manager. Read more about the detailed biography profile page below.
Detailed Biography Profile Page
Detailed biography profile pages are created and managed by the web content manager at the department/unit level. The information on these full profile pages is written by the CAES employee or a designated representative.
Example of a full profile page:
Manpreet Singh – Department Head and Professor
When navigating to the People section of a departmental or unit website, the directory listing will link directly to the detailed biography profile page if available. If the employee does not have a full profile page, the link will direct to the basic personnel directory page.
