Getting Started as Faculty/Staff
Your Faculty/Staff ID number
When you are employed by the university, you receive a five-to-nine digit number assigned only to you. This number is commonly located on your university id card (on the back), as well as your contract paperwork. This id number allows you to reset your email/My Fresno State/Blackboard password online. With all sensitive information, keep it safe.
Your ID card
You can obtain your Faculty/Staff ID card by visiting the Bulldog Card office.
Your Fresno State Account
This account will allow you to access your Fresno State email account and other resources you will need as a Fresno State employee. To create your account follow these instructions.
Blackboard, an online learning management system (LMS), was designed for the 21st century learning environment. Clean and simple to use, it is highly robust with interconnected features that can extend teaching and learning beyond the limits of the physical classroom. Blackboard allows you to integrate multimedia course content, course communications, student assessments (quizzes, assignments), and student grades to create a cohesive, connected virtual space for your class.
