Sometimes you know the name of the office or department you need to get in touch with, but you don’t have the name of a specific person. You can’t use the “People Finder” without a person’s name. So for those situations we provide the Office and Department Directory channel.
Where Is It?
- Log into the My VolState portal at https://portal.volstate.edu/.
- Click on the “Search” tab.
- The “Office and Department Directory” channel is the 2nd box down on the left-hand column by default.
How Do I Use It?
The channel loads initially sorted alphabetically by the office name. You may be able to quickly scan down the list until you spot what you are looking for. There is also a “Search” box. Typing in this box will automatically filter out any rows that don’t contain your search criteria. For example, typing “Ramer” in the box will filter the list to display only offices located in the Ramer building. Or typing “business” in the box will filter the list to only those offices with the word “business” in their title, such as “Business Division” and “Business Office”.
The channel displays the office name, location, phone number, and (if available) email address. You may email, call, or drop by in person.
If you don’t know the office or department that can help you but you’ve got the name of a faculty of staff member, use the “People Finder” instead.
