Guidance Notes

The Our People page provides an opportunity to showcase the different types of Staff that work in the school. Group types have already been populated for the school site and these are listed below.

  1. Executive
  2. Academic
  3. Adjunct and Honorary
  4. Associate
  5. Fellows
  6. Professional Staff

NOTE: If the Research Areas and Projects have not yet been created, return to the Research/Staff Profile at a later date and update these fields when available.


The Staff Groups section of the Our People page relies on the Staff Group taxonomy and the Research/Staff profile content type. The Staff Group taxonomy consists of a list of terms to group types of staff, such as Academic or Professional. It is recommended that the school determine how they would like to group their staff and add these groups as terms to the Staff Group taxonomy.  In the screenshot below the list of terms included in the Staff Group taxonomy are displayed.  When creating the Researcher/Staff Profile, a term is selected to add a staff member to one of the groups in the Staff Group taxonomy.
