The news system is part of the faculty profile system. You can log in to the system by visiting profile.yale.edu , clicking on ‘edit a profile. The profile system contains profiles for people and organizations. If you browse to someone’s profile or to an organization’s profile, you’ll see that they both now have ‘news’ in the list of navigation items on the left.
You can add news by going to that news page and clicking the ‘add news’ button or by clicking the news navigation item at the top and then clicking the ‘add news’ button.
To get access to an organization in the faculty profile system, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, netid, and the name of the organization to which you want access.
