Bio Guide

All bios are should be edited at least once per semester to update office hours and locations as necessary.

If you work for more than one department, you will need to create a bio for each department in order to connect you to the appropriate departments for the directory, as well as for each department’s Faculty & Staff page. When you move departments, you will have to remove your bio from that department.

Creating/Editing Your Bio

*If you do not have a bio, select Add content > Bio and follow steps 6 – 16.

  1. Log in to Drupal at grcc.edu/user
  2. If you already have a bio, navigate to your department website, select Faculty & Staff.
  3. Click on your bio (actually click on your name)
  4. Select Edit. If you are creating a bio for the first time, you will already be in edit mode.
