Review & Edit Your Employee Profile

A New Employee Directory System for Foothill

On Monday, June 5, the Marketing Office moved to a new employee directory system.

Key Changes

  • We no longer update Foothill directory profiles in the old 3CMS directory, archived here for anyone who would like to reference their old profile content.
  • Instead, all employees are being provided a profile to edit using OmniCMS. See below how to get started editing your profile, including training and support schedule.
  • The schedule of classes faculty names now point to the new profiles, along with most instructional department website faculty and staff listings,
