Description

Building upon this ticket - http://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/show/629 , I'd like to continue our discussion of the ways in which we should ask people to define themselves on the Commons. Namely, I'd like us to consider a profile field that would have people identify themselves as faculty members, grad students, staff, non-CUNY collaborators, etc.

A few questions:

1. What should the roles be? Here's a starter list:
  • Faculty member
  • CUNY staff member
  • CUNY administrator (should staff/administrator be collapsed?)
  • Graduate Student
  • Non-CUNY collaborator

2. Should the field be required? I say yes. What do you think?

3. Should it be a checkbox so that people can check more than one role if needed? I say yes.

Thoughts/other questions?
