About

UNF Faculty Domains is a project at the University of North Florida managed by the Center for Instruction and Research Technology (CIRT).

UNF Faculty Domains is a full featured web hosting solution that offers the opportunity to create academic publishing spaces using modern web applications. This project is one of many “Domain of One’s Own” projects happening at institutions of higher learning across the country. As part of UNF’s version of Domain of One’s Own, UNF faculty receive their own subdomain (web space) to install the available applications, as well as easy to use management tools.

WordPress, Omeka, and Scalar are currently available.

These faculty domains can function as hubs for professional presence. The service provides both simple templates for common needs and more sophisticated tools and support for faculty who wish to experiment.

To further clarify the purpose of Faculty Domains, there is a terrific video featuring Christopher Long, the Dean of Arts & Letters at Michigan State University speaking about Crafting Your Digital Scholarly Presence.

“deeply embedded in Domain of One’s Own, [is] that it is important to have one’s own space in order to develop one’s ideas and one’s craft.” – Audrey Watters
