FAU Unveils Updated Experts Database
FAU Today Site also Offers Comprehensive University Information

             BOCA RATON, FL (March 3, 2011) –  Florida Atlantic University’s faculty and staff experts who are available for research purposes, as media sources and are part of a university speaker’s bureau can now be searched in an updated version of the university’s online experts database - www.fau.edu/experts .  This database currently houses profiles of more than 350 faculty and staff members, and contains approximately 2,500 searchable keywords with additions to come.
            The experts found within the database cover the full range of the University’s programs, including the arts and humanities, medicine and health, science and technology, nursing, business, education, engineering, computer science, architecture, public affairs and more. The database has replaced multiple printed directories, and is a free resource that will be immediately refreshed as new faculty and staff are added and as areas of expertise expand.

FAU Today – www.fau.edu/fautoday – is a new valuable web resource that also is available.  A comprehensive information site that showcases the latest, top news while providing links to a host of other online destinations, FAU Today features a Faculty Video Spotlight, the Scene@FAU photo gallery and YouTube videos about FAU. Pull-down menus and left-column links provide instant connections to everything from the Calendar of Events to recent print and broadcast news stories involving FAU.
