How do I make my profile appear in the directory?

Our directory obtains a list of CHS faculty and staff from ISU servers once a day. If you are currently not listed in our directory, you may be in one (or more) of the following special cases:

  • You are working at CHS, but your department (currently on file) is not in one of the following: AESHM, FCSXT, FS HN, HD FS, HS AD, HS SS, I P, KIN, NWRC, and SOE.
  • You are a new employee.1
  • You recently switched departments/offices.1

If you do not fall in one of the above special cases, please contact chswebrequest@iastate.edu and request a manual add to the directory.

How do I remove myself (or a faculty) from the directory?

By default, all CHS faculty and staff should be shown publicly on our directory. If you (or a faculty you know) have recently left CHS, please wait up to a month for the profile to be removed from the directory. If in some events, the profile still exists after a month since you (or the faculty) had left, please request a manual remove to chswebrequest@iastate.edu.

How do I change my profile picture?

Only faculty and staff that came in HS Communications office and had their photo taken by our photographer may have their photo appear in the directory. If you would like to have your photo taken, please make an appointment with rbriley@iastate.edu.

What changes can I make to my profile myself?

All faculty and staff in the CHS directory may update any of the following themselves:

  • Research interests
  • Resume/Vita
  • Other information

How do I make changes to my profile?

ISU faculty and staff may change their directory information through AccessPlus. If you are a faculty or staff, you must make the changes under the Employee tab. These changes include local address, permanent address, and office address only. Note that changes on AccessPlus may take up to few days to reflect on our directory.
For other changes such as research interests, resume/vita, and miscellaneous information, please use the Update tab on the CHS directory.

How do I make changes to my department and title?

The primary department and title information are handled by HR. Please contact your department first--an Electronic Personnel Action (EPA) must be completed by your department before changes can be made in HR.

How do I add/modify secondary information?

Secondary information includes secondary title, department, office address, and phone number. To make changes to these, please request changes to hswebmaster@iastate.edu.

Who may I contact for other inquiries about the directory?

Please contact our web developer, chswebrequest@iastate.edu or HS Communications office, hswebmaster@iastate.edu.
