Information for Current Graduate Students > Miscellaneous Department-Specific Information > The Directory
Upon accepting admission as a graduate student, the Graduate Secretary will assign each individual their own account and profile within the Animal Biosciences webpage.
It is encouraged that you fill in your profile, which will help in getting to know one another's research both within the department and to external visitors, in addition to being able to market yourself and the department better. We wish to be able to link professionally completed profiles to news published at Guelph relevant to our research!
You can access the directory listing all members within the department, including graduate students, staff, and faculty using the "People" tab, accessible from the homepage. The graduate student directory is accessible via People > Graduate Students under the "Department People" menu.
Before you can access your personal profile, you must first log in to the department website. As our system does not use the Central Login credentials, a password for your Gryph Mail address (which is used as your ID on this site) must be set up. This can be done via the following:
- Click My account under Department menu upon scrolling down all the way down to the bottom of the webpage.
- Click Request new password beside the Log in tab.
- Enter your Gryph Mail address, then click Email new password.
- View your Gryph Mail Inbox to find the password, which serves as a one-time usage password.
- A permanent password of your choice can then be registered upon logging in with the one-time usage password, when editing your personal profile.
You may then log in indefinitely via clicking My account again and entering your newly established login info.
Upon successful login, you will be automatically directed to your profile page. There is a View and an Edit tab below your name; click on Edit to enter all required information to create a complete profile.
Below is a general guideline to help steer you in the right direction in creating a professional profile.
- A good profile should include the following three features: your research interests, a brief synopsis of your research that the general public can understand, and your aspirations/future endeavours upon graduation of your program.
- You may wish to use the Interests section to summarize your research in one-word tags. This is accessible upon clicking the Edit tab of your personal profile. You may check up to four boxes.
- Your contact info listed on your profile should include the room number to your office and/or laboratory, your email-address, and your office's 5-digit campus phone extension.
