For faculty to have access to a University account, the department chair must complete a Faculty Information Form (FIF) and send to Academic Affairs along with other employment materials. If there are questions about whether this has been completed, please contact your department chair.

BraveWeb is used for obtaining a class roster and entering grades, as well as other tasks.  The faculty network account (username/password) is used for accessing BraveWeb.
