Going Green – Phone Directory Moving On-line

This traditionally has been the time of year that the Faculty, Staff, and Student Directory is printed and distributed. As part of the University’s support for sustainability and the overall initiative of the Commonwealth of Virginia to go ‘green’, we have made the decision to discontinue printing the directory. Instead, we are asking that all faculty, staff, and students use the existing on-line directory found on the UMW web site.

Using the on-line directory is very easy. There is a link to it at the top of the UMW home page, next to the search window at the top right, or you may type http://www.umw.edu/directory/ directly into your browser. Once on the directory page, there are several options:

The first is a general search option. By following the instructions at the top of the page, you can search for a student or staff/faculty member by entering the last name (first name is optional) and clicking the appropriate ‘Scope’ (Students or Faculty/Staff), and then clicking ‘Search’. A more detailed search can be performed by clicking on the drop-down menu below the ‘Faculty/Staff” option and choosing a department. For example, clicking on Design Services and clicking ‘Search’ will result in a listing of all staff members in Design Services.

An alphabetical listing of all department and office phone numbers is accessed by clicking on the second item on the sidebar menu. The third item on this menu provides an A-Z listing of academic department and program phone numbers. Also available in this sidebar menu are mailing addresses, information phone numbers, and a link to the Meet the Faculty pages.

Please contact Paula Wilder at pwilder@umw.edu if personal or department information (name, address, room number, telephone number, title) is incorrect. Changes to information in any of the sidebar directories should be submitted to Marty Morrison at mmorris3@umw.edu.

Some improvements are currently in the works for the on-line directory, and those will be announced as they are completed. Please be aware, however, that personal addresses and phone numbers will not be accessible through the on-line directory.
