About the Faculty Profile System
UCI's Faculty Profile System is a centralized and searchable information resource that showcases faculty members' work on individual profile pages that include their research focuses and publications, degrees, and honors and grants, among other types of information. Designed to help faculty develop sources of support for their work, Faculty Profiles also increases accessibility for collaborators, students, and the community. Searches can be done by name, department, keyword or full text data fields. Phone numbers and e-mail links are built into each record for easy communication, as are links to personal or departmental web pages. The system is used by:
- Scholars and scientists who wish to locate faculty members for research collaboration or scientific/scholarly exchange
- Current and prospective students to learn more about their professors and academic or research potential
- Research Development staff for linking faculty with research funding opportunities and developing interdisciplinary teams
- industrial firms seeking expertise, research collaborators and consulting assistance
- The Office of Technology Alliances (OTA) to foster industry research collaboration and technology transfer
- The UCI Advancement Office for introducing faculty members to philanthropic organizations and foundations
- The Communications Office when news media and public relations people need access to subject matter expertise
- Members of the public who wish to find out more about the research done at UCI.
Faculty members are invited to update or add their profiles to the UCI Faculty Profile System by following the instructions on the "For Faculty" page. Members of the public, and of other offices on the UCI campus, are invited to search the Faculty Profiles by following the instructions on the "Search Tips" page.
