The academic portfolio template is designed to create an online presence for faculty and graduate students. Here you can publish a brief introduction of yourself and list your professional accomplishments, as well as your CV, Research, Teaching, and Service. The News tab allows you to blog about things going on in your professional life.
You can change anything you want once you’ve create a site from this template, including theme, menu, plugins, and widgets.
Here is a demo of what an academic portfolio could look at. You may demo the site online.
