Faculty/Staff Hub Profile Standards

As part of the MSOE community, Faculty and Staff members are required to create an account on Hub, MSOE's social community. You will need your MSOE email and password in order to create your Hub account.

As a part of your account, you will have a profile.  This profile is used for the faculty/staff directory and you will be required to share particular information both internally and externally.  Details on how to create your account and set your profile according to the Faculty/Staff Profile policy follow.

 

To create an account, please follow these steps:

  • Go to www.msoe.edu
  • Click on Register in the upper right-hand corner
  • Choose "I have MSOE credentials".

  • Each field has four options:
    • Everyone -- meaning this is visible externally, as well as within the Hub community.
    • Registered Users -- meaning this is only visible to people who are within the Hub community.
    • Friends -- meaning this field is only visible to people who are following you
    • Yourself -- meaning this field is completely private and only you have access to it.

 

Your profile must have the following fields externally viewable. This means the general public (non-Hub account holders) are able to access this information:

  • First and Last Name
  • Email
  • External phone number, meaning your department number or 800 number
  • Your Department Name
  • Your Job Title
  • Profile Image
  • Avatar -- can either be the same as your picture or the default MSOE logo

 

Your profile must have the following fields internally viewable, this means only Hub account holders are able to access this information:

  • First and Last Name
  • Email
  • Phone number, meaning your direct extension
  • Your Department Name
  • Your Office Number
  • Your Job Title
  • Profile Image
  • Avatar -- can either be the same as your picture or the default MSOE logo.

There are additional fields as part of the profile that are optional.  These you can complete and make public according to your preference.  Those options are:

  • Biography: this is place to share your accomplishments in brief.
  • URL: this is if you have a personal webpage that you would like to share.
  • Work Address: your mailing address on campus
  • Preferred Method of Contact
  • Education: this is to highlight where you have earned your degrees and when. Most appropriate for faculty to complete.
  • Honors and Awards: this is to highlight accomplishments that are directly related to your role at MSOE
  • Publications: this is to highlight any articles or research that has been published
  • Areas of specialization or expertise:

 

There are three fields you may opt to keep to your viewing only, by putting the Visible To setting on Yourself.  Those fields are:

  • Hide Badges: This would remove the badges you can earn within the site.  This function was set up with students in mind and may not be a way you would like to demonstrate your activity in the community or to the general public.
  • Member Since:  This shows when you created your Hub account
  • Last Logged In:  This shows the last time you signed into Hub
