What is Profiles?
Profiles is a research networking and expertise mining software tool for faculty. It not only shows traditional directory information, but also illustrates how each person is connected to others in the broad research community. This page assists faculty with making edits to their profile.
UMMS Information Services maintains UMass Profiles. New faculty members get Profiles once they are in the HR system. Please review your profile for possible edits.
