You can add or update some of your directory information yourself in SPIRE. The following information summarizes how to manage additional directory information that you cannot edit in SPIRE.
Steps to update your name information vary, depending on the type of name you wish to update and whether or not you are a student. Review detailed information on our Names in SPIRE page to find out how to update your Primary, Preferred, and Human Resources names.
To change your official IT email address (Campus Email), submit an Online Help Request.
Directory listings default to business titles for professional staff and state titles for faculty and classified staff. Classified staff may elect to publish a business title instead of a state title with their supervisor’s approval. Read more about Employee Job Titles.
You can ask your supervisor to request changes to your job title as it appears in the UMass Amherst directories such as People Finder.
Current and former students: You must contact the Dean of Students Office to withhold your contact information from People Finder or the UMass Directory. No local or permanent address information appears in People Finder for students.
Employees: Set your preferences about whether to display your home contact information in the UMass Amherst print directories from the SPIRE Menu. UMass Directory > My Directory Info. Your workplace contact info, i.e. address, telephone number, and email address, must be published in all forms of the UMass Amherst directory. No home address or home telephone information appears in People Finder for employees.
From the SPIRE Menu, choose OIT Accounts > Retiree OIT Services to maintain your UMass directory information. You can specify which kinds of contact information to publish. You can also choose to exclude your contact information from the directory while still maintaining access to your IT account services. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
