Why Do the Welcome Tabs for Faculty and Staff Show Student-Related Information?

Faculty and Staff will notice that the new portal Welcome Tab contains some student-related information channels.  The reasons for that are two-fold.  You will recall that the new portal project will occur in phases.  In Phase I, rolled out at the end of October 2018, the focus was to create a more engaging, all-important-information-encompassed-on-one-page experience for our students.  In subsequent phases of the Portal Project, the Welcome Tab will be more tailored to faculty and staff needs, respectively.

Further, if a faculty or staff member was a former Illinois Tech student or is now enrolled in classes, you will have access to this student-related content because of your past/current experience; you will see, e.g., information related to previous/current coursework.
