What are attributes and how are they used?

Attributes give the opportunity to include department-specific information with faculty and staff members. These attributes will accompany any additional information (education, distinctions, courses, office hours, grants, etc.) that was specified in creating the faculty member’s profile.

Attributes are created for the individual department and will apply to all users associated with the department.
