    We put content up on our sites and we take it back down.  Here are instructions on how to make your page "live" or hide it until you are ready to use it again.

    "Publishing" a page is the term that dotCMS uses for making something available to visitors of you pages.  "Unpublishing" then is just the opposite.  There will be times when you want to work on a page without everyone seeing a work in progress and then make it live when you are ready.

    Additionally, when creating or modifying any pages or content on your site, if you use the "Save & Publish" button when you finish editing, the item will be published immediately.

    Note: Pages and content in your site will often times be listed with a colored circle that indicates their "Status".  A green circle indicates an item that is publish, yellow indicates unpublished, and red indicates archived.

    How to Publish a Page:

    1. After logging in to dotCMS you will be taken to the Website Browser tab.
    2. Navigate to the page in your folder and page structure that you want to publish.
    3. Right click on the name of the page.
    4. Choose "Publish" from the menu that appears.
    5. The circle under "Status" for that page should now be green indicating that the item is no longer live on your site.
    6. Note: If you are ever updating a page and your content doesn't show up when you think it should, try re-publishing the page even though the "Status" is already published.  Sometimes this can force out content that is being stubborn.
    7. Also Note: You can publish or republish any page while previewing it in dotCMS by using the "Publish Page" link on the left in the administration panel.

    How to Publish Page Content:

    2. Ensure that the correct content type is selected in the "Type" drop down on the left.
    3. Fill in any applicable fields, such as "Title"or "Folder/Host" to narrow down which items you will see in your search.
    4. Click "Search".
    5. Use the list that appears on the right to locate the content you wish to publish. 
    6. Right click on the name of the applicable item and choose "Publish".
    7. Your content item will display a green "Status" icon.
    8. Note: Publishing a piece of content makes it live in ALL PAGES where it is used, not just the page you publish it from.

    Faculty Conversations

    In this blockly lunch-and-learn, a faculty presenter or small panel shares their engaged teaching or research with interested faculty from across the college. This series is intended to support faculty who would like to learn more about community-engaged teaching and research on the block format, meet like-minded colleagues, and discover faculty projects with which they can get involved.  These lunches are intentionally informal to enable faculty to ask questions and dialogue with one another, explore how to implement engaged models, and discuss possible collaborations.  Critically, these lunches also provide a space to share and celebrate the engaged work of faculty.

    Community Partner RFP (Request for Proposals) for Research Projects

    Through facilitating a “Request for Proposals” (RFP) process for community-based organizations, the CCE will begin to generate a list of community-driven projects that can connect to teaching or research.  First, we will scaffold the process by educating partners about research methods and outcomes, the capacities of our faculty and students, and the block schedule.  Then, we will support an application process through which partners can share research needs and knowledge-based project ideas.  A committee will review applications to curate a list of possible community-engaged research project ideas, which the CCE will share widely as well as proactively targeting specific faculty and courses.  The goal for this process is to guide faculty teaching and research toward community-identified needs, as well as guide our partners toward the types of projects that best leverage knowledge and provide learning opportunities.
