- The primary audience is the prospective student. “Professor X has authored and reviewed several history textbooks and appeared in a PBS documentary,” is more interesting and faster to read than a list of citations of your works.
- This is not a CV. Do not list academic publications. If desired, in the free-form academic profile section, you may provide a link to an online resource of your CV, publications, or personal website.
- Accessible style recommends the omission of periods in the degree abbreviations, e.g.: PhD, not Ph.D.
- The institution is listed once for multiple degrees, example: BS, MBA, Fairleigh Dickinson University.
- Degrees are listed in chronological order.
- Name, titles, and degrees are presented in Title Case, never all CAPITAL LETTERS.
- An honorific such as Dr. is not used in the profile title name.
- Non-academic certification credentials may follow the name, example: Ron West, CFP, CPA/PFS.
- Bold and underline are not used. Italics would only be used for foreign words and phrases.
- Special characters do not transfer well in this form. If special characters need to be used in the spelling of your name or educational institution, please use the comments section, example: “Please use the acute-e as the last e of Rene.” Or, “Please email me about special characters in my name.”
- The Higher Education Act of 1965 requires FDU to list faculty information of title, degree, and the awarding institution, as is our practice in the printed bulletins:
