Why?

Content will be standardized on the Drupal platform, already familiar to users who provide content on the University website.

Impact

Faculty will update their faculty profiles directly on the University website, using the same login credentials. Faculty profiles will be frozen for editing from 12/16/2019 to 12/19/2019 while the content is moved from APEX to Drupal. 

Benefits

Most administrative staff are already familiar with Drupal and can have proxy access to update faculty profiles. There will be a quick-click button on faculty profiles to make editing easier. Published changes will immediately appear on the website.

Action Needed

No action is required. 

Details

If you need a change to your faculty profile during migration, please email cmshelp@wpi.edu and your profile will be updated for you. 

The faculty annual report will remain in APEX for the current 2019-2020 academic year. It will move to Workday in the 2020-2021 academic year.
