Profiles Prospects: Who’s Next?

You may have noticed – there’s no shortage of amazing UMW faculty and staff to showcase in EagleEye ProFiles Q&A features. But we want to hear from you.

Is there a UMW employee you’d like to know more about? Curious about the ins and outs of this person’s job? Wondering what makes them show up and do their best work day after day?

We’ve put together a special Q&A to walk you through the nomination process. It’s quick and easy! We hope you’ll use it to let us know which of your Mary Washington colleagues you’d like to see celebrated in EagleEye. Or, hey, if you’re feeling confident, go ahead and nominate yourself! We won’t tell.

Q: Who is eligible to be highlighted in EagleEye ProFiles Q&A features?
A: Anyone who works at UMW!

Q: What do I need to know about the person I’m nominating?
A: Not much, really. We don’t need a lot of information to get started – just the person’s name and job title if you know it. It’s a bonus if you let us know why you’re interested in learning more about this person and their job. Why are you curious about what they do? Have you noticed something special about this person that could help us customize their questions?

Q: I know this person is busy. If they agree to be featured, will it take much of their time?
A: No! Being highlighted in a ProFiles Q&A is pretty painless. We send each subject a list of 10 to 15 questions, and we grab a photo of them, which typically takes no more than 10 minutes.

Q: Will my colleagues know I nominated them?
A: No, not unless you decide to spill the beans.

Q: Where should I send my nomination info?
A: Please contact us – with the name of the person you’d like to see featured, plus their job title, if you know it, and any extra input you think would be helpful – at eagleeye@umw.edu.
