Web Presence for Full-time Faculty

The Academic Technology Committee offers two opportunities for an online presence to provide faculty with professional websites to enhance the national visibility that UMass Lowell.

These solutions provide faculty with easy-to-use tools to create dynamic, mobile-responsive and ADA-compliant pages. The the first solution,, is a WordPress environment hosted by CampusPress running the ‘Elementor’ page builder. This widget-based editor and template is expected to be the more desirable solution due to the ease of use, number of features, and lack of HTML coding. The second solution, a secure SFTP server, will allow faculty to easily migrate existing content from to this new environment. This is designed for faculty interested in using standard HTML editing software, like Adobe Dreamweaver.

Request a Faculty Website is no longer accessible to faculty. Any content not migrated in 2018 to a new environment will not be available via a web browser; however, it has been archived.
