Need a new faculty website? Here are your options.

Recommended: iSearch

In January of 2017, ASU fully implemented a new directory system called iSearch:  isearch.asu.edu. iSearch is a robust system which displays personal profiles for everyone at ASU, replacing the ASU Directory.

There are several advantages to using iSearch as your webpage, including:

  • ASU searches for your name will likely display your iSearch as the top result
  • Within a year or so, departmental directories will pull information directly from your iSearch profile
  • You can update your information directly, any time you like, no coding required.

What will someone see in my iSearch profile?

In your personal profile, you can define everything you would normally include in a website:

Other website options

Should you choose not to use iSearch, other options are available at ASU for Fulton Schools faculty. All use Content Management Systems (CMS). CMS websites allow the content to be managed easily by the user, no coding required, in a word-processing, push button-type interface. 

  • Faculty Websites at web.asu.edu
    ASU University Technology Office (UTO) has started a new service specificallly for building faculty websites at web.asu.edu. This is a build-your-own website solution that conforms to ASU Web Standards, is easy to setup, and no coding experience is required. Get the full details at web.asu.edu. Web.asu.edu sites use a content management system (CMS) called Drupal, and technical support for web.asu.edu sites is provided by UTO, not the Fulton Schools.

  • Webspark
    UTO also offers a more generalized website tool called “Webspark” which is an out-of-the box, ASU Web Standards-compliant website building tool for any type of website. Webspark sites can be developed quickly, with little or no coding experience required. Webspark also uses the Drupal content management system, and technical support is provided by UTO, not the Fulton Schools.

  • WordPress hosting with the Fulton Schools

    • Update for Fall 2018: We are not able to create new faculty websites until the end of October (2018). During this time we will be working on a project with the University Technology Office (UTO) to offer free WordPress websites and hosting for faculty.

      We appreciate your patience during this time. Our team can still assist with websites that are urgent in nature and require a specific deadline. Please email Jennifer Di Sano for details.

    The Fulton Schools use WordPress, a very popular content management system, and our Marketing and Communications office can provide an ASU Web Standards-compliant WordPress site for faculty.

    Our services include setting up the site and, if needed, populating the site with initial content provided by the faculty member. While the Fulton Schools pay for hosting, content maintenance is provided by the user.

    For initial site setups, we can help you move content from an existing website hosted elsewhere. We have limited resources to help with customizations after a site is up and running. Domains for new websites should follow the format of yournamehere.engineering.asu.edu.

    “Managed” hosting means that behind the scenes we keep your website code base up to date and create automated backups so that your site is secure.

How to request a site from Fulton Schools Marketing and Communications

Complete our project request form and select “New website” as the Project type (on the second screen). Here are some current faculty sites for content ideas. New sites will follow the ASU Web Standards
