Guest Post: Check Out the College’s New Directory and Build Your Profile by Clare Briner

College directory with profile of Clare Briner
Directory profile for Clare Briner, Director of Marketing and Communications

Last semester, the college launched enhancements to the existing college directory to meet growing demands for college staff, faculty, students and the general public to access information about the college and its employees.

The enhancements give faculty and staff the option of providing biographical information, specialty areas, a college photograph, and more. Such enhancements bring the college’s directory in line with those available at other higher education institutions, and standardizes the information available, its location and the look and feel.

Check out the college’s directory, available at  It’s also accessible from the college’s website and the MVConnect portal.

The directory now also becomes a valuable marketing tool to showcase the expertise of our college faculty and staff, and allows our students to get to know their faculty before enrolling in a course—a need cited by students.

Consider submitting a Directory Profile Request form located in the MVConnect portal in the Marketing and Communications area.

You will be able to share your research interests, teaching style and/or a short biography about your career and accomplishments. This is your opportunity to give your students an idea of who you are via information you provide.

In conjunction with the new directory, the college is taking new portraits of employees. The college photographer will host open studio hours periodically throughout the year, but employees can initiate a new photo by completing a Directory Profile Request.

If you have any questions or recommendations for the directory, please contact Clare Briner at ext. 5286 or
