News and Announcements

Online Directory Improvements Announced
University IT and University Communications announce new features to both the faculty/staff and student online directories. Improvements to the online directory include moving the most commonly used sections of the printed directory to the online directory landing page for easy access, a secure internal site for faculty/staff and student listings, and enhanced capabilities for department administrators and students to allow a different view to the public if desired. Users are encouraged to login for full access to the faculty/staff and student directories and access to some of the links which require NetID login such as department listings, Highland Hospital staff directory, paging directory, and tunnel maps.
