How can I manage my web presence through Villanova?

Villanova provides several opportunitiies for faculty and staff members to maintain their web presence. The first is the bio page, a webpage that can be reached from your departmental websites and modified via the University Bio Tool.

For more customized options, the University also provides WebDAV-accessible web hosting, for those who are familiar with WebDAV content editing tools. To make editing easier for those unfamiliar with HTML, CLAS IT provides customizable templates for convenience.

Finally, for faculty members of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences who want both customization and useability for their personal homepage, CLAS IT maintains its own web hosting server that supports advanced CMS editors such as Wordpress and Joomla. You can request your own website using the CLAS Web Hosting form.

All class-related materials should be hosted on Blackboard. Except for faculty bios, the departmental pages are maintained individually by each department.
