What determines who is listed in the directory?

The policy is determined by the HUIT Identity and Access Management Product Manager, in conjunction with key stakeholders, such as Registrars and HR.  All active non-temporary employees are eligible to be listed. Some departments will also list non-employee affiliates working as consultants or contractors.  Students who are pursuing a degree or certificate are also eligible by the policies outlined in their local student handbooks.

What data are displayed in a directory listing?

An employee directory listing may include the following data: name, job title(s), HR department name(s), photograph, official e-mail address, office telephone & phone location, office fax and location, and office address.
