Name changes

The University of Alaska recognizes that many members of its community use names other than their legal names to identify themselves. Individual's may elect to use a chosen/preferred first name in the university directory, and select university-related systems and documents, provided that the chosen/preferred first name is not being used for the purpose of misrepresentation. The official/legal name will continue to be used in all university-related systems and documents that require a verified legal name.

Department/Program Listings

Each university department, office, or unit has one or more delegates who are responsible for maintaining directory information in the Online Directory.

Directory delegates are frequently administrative assistants or office support staff. It is helpful for the delegates to be familiar with - or even involved with - personnel paperwork so that updating the department listings occurs at the same time as staff changes.

Update a Current Listing

The directory delegate(s) for the unit may submit a Directory Listing form. Once received, updates are typically completed within 4 to 5 business days.

Request a New Listing

Units may request a new listing at any time. Before making a request, search the Online Directory site to make sure the unit is not already listed. Subunits are often listed as part of the parent unit listing. Duplicate listings are not allowed.

To make a request for a new listing, the department head should determine who on their staff will serve as the directory delegate(s). The directory delegates are responsible for approving their unit's Directory content and updating the Directory site. It's up to individual units to determine their own process for who collects information for updates and how frequently.

To initiate a request for a new listing, the department head must fill out the Directory Listing form. Upon submitting the form, the Directory request is reviewed for completeness, and once reviewed and approved, new entries are typically created within 4 to 5 business days.

Update Your Unit's Directory Delegates

To update a Directory Delegate for your unit, the unit head, or an existing delegate, should send the following information to callcenter@uaa.alaska.edu:

Remove a Current Listing

The department/unit head should fill out the Directory Listing form. Upon submitting the form, the Directory removal request is typically completed within 4 to 5 business days.
