OpenScholar Replacing Static Faculty Webpages

OpenScholar logo

OpenScholar is an open source application developed at Harvard which gives each faculty member complete control over their Purchase-affiliated academic online presence. It is a much better alternative to the existing static faculty webpages, which faculty currently have no control over. Using OpenScholar, you will be able to easily create and manage your dynamic professional website without the need for any special technical skills; it’s as easy to use as a word processing program. Faculty will no longer have to wait for updates to be made to their faculty webpage, as you will be given full control over your website.

Here are a few examples of Purchase faculty/staff OpenScholar sites:

Additional information regarding faculty web pages is available in the Faculty Handbook.
