Starfish - Faculty Set-up

Starfish is a system that creates a network of communication between faculty, students, and student services staff to support student success.

As a faculty, there are two steps to get started with Starfish

  • Reviewing and updating up your profile
  • Creating office hours

Faculty Profile

The Institutional Profile is what students and others in the Starfish system see - including your picture, contact information, and background. Some information is automatically populated from Banner (like your picture). You will want to review that information to make sure it is accurate and add any missing information.

Use the "Updating Your Profile" article for specific walk-through steps.

Office Hours

The Office Hours tool in Starfish allows you to set times you are available and for students to make appointments with you. Appointments through Starfish also provide confirmations and reminders for students.

Use the "Setting Up Office Hours" article for step by step instructions.
