All official SUNY Buffalo State department, school, and office websites include a directory of faculty and staff. Directory listings include basic name, academic title, and contact information. For faculty, a headshot photo should also be included.

Faculty are encouraged to expand their directory listing into an informational biography page to share with students, the campus community, the media, and peer institutions.
