Instructions for Faculty Profiles

All Faculty profiles are stored on Tufts Faculty Information System (FIS). The goal of FIS is to give faculty a single, powerful tool for organizing and showcasing their accomplishments. 

FIS is composed of two sites – Elements and Discovery. The Tufts Elements site is only accessible to Tufts faculty members and certain support staff. Faculty go to Elements to edit the information in their profiles. Updates made in Tufts Elements may take up to 3 days sync on vet.tufts.edu.

Help is available on TTS/Elements and Discovery: Faculty Information System (FIS). You may also email symelements@tufts.edu with any questions.

Once your FIS faculty profile is live, you or a designated staff member can submit a request to vetweb@tufts.edu to have it posted to Cummings School's website.
