Campus Portal

Submit Feedback or Report a Problem with the Portal(opens in new window)

uPortal is the primary Campus Portal. It provides relevant links and information based on the role of the person that logs into the system. That means a student logging in will have a different experience than an employee logging in, each need to see different information and access different systems.

Major Campus Portal Updates

We are updating the Campus Portal to provide you with less cluttered, more personalized and relevant information. This is a large change and so we are breaking the changes down into three steps. The end goal is to have useful information and links for you available on one to two tabs instead of across four, five, or more. “Less is more.”

We are also excited as this begins efforts to make the Portal dynamic, bringing “The right information to the right person at the right time.”

The “Final” Product for this Rollout

All of the detailed changes below culminate in a new Campus Portal with the following layout:

Three Tabs:

  • My Portal
    • Relevant information and links based on your role on campus.
  • My Updates
    • Dynamically updated information based on your role on campus. Starting with assigned trainings to students and employees as well as targeted messages to students with a link to The Student Center.
  • Customize
    • Information and tools regarding how to customize your “My Portal” tab.

This work represents the first brush stroke at updating the Campus Portal to make it a more relevant and useful tool for our campus. We will continue to develop and publish additional dynamic content, take measure of usage metrics and feedback and continuously improve this product.

Rollout Details:

Step 1: July 15th

  • Expand the footer with relevant links that belong on every page.
    • This includes links to important systems like E-Mail, Student Resources, Zoom, Blackboard, and Health and Safety information.
  • Remove tabs: Campus Apps & Links, Early Start Students, and Campus Safety.
  • Implement more granular data about a person’s role at the campus.
    • For example, if you were a student that graduated 10 years ago and are now working as an employee you probably don’t need to see all of the links and information meant for current students as you do in the Portal today. How about we just show you information relevant to employees and a link to look up your transcript?

Step 2: July 20th

  • Replace the “Home” tabs with the “My Portal” tab.
    • Currently there are Student Home, Faculty Home, Staff Home, and State Employee tabs. We are condensing all of these into a single tab called “My Portal.”
    • You will see information and links relevant to you based on your role on campus. Most of what is currently in the “Student Home” tab will show up in “My Portal” for students. Information in the “State Employee” tab will show up in “My Portal” for employees. If you are both and student and employee you will see both sets of information.

Step 3: July 29th

  • Add dynamic “My Updates” tab.
    • This tab will have dynamic information relevant to you in real time. To start off employees will see a list of trainings to which they are currently assigned. Students will see relevant messages with a link to the Student Center as well as their assigned trainings.
  • Remove Admissions & Orientation and My Accounts tabs.
    • Information from these tabs will be shown in “My Portal.”
  • Add “Customize” tab.
    • This tab will allow you to customize your “My Portal” tab as you see fit. Need a link to a system you access often but isn’t included in the default layout? This is where you can add it. Want to get rid of information you don’t need? Links to knowledge base articles on how to do that will be on this tab.
