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.
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.
The My VolState portal provides an advanced version of the “People Finder” you may already be familiar with from the main website. It allows for searches by first name or last name or both. It also allows for partial searches. So if you are not sure about the spelling of a name you can type in the first few letters. Just be warned that may turn up lots of results!
Type a full or partial name into either the “First Name” or “Last Name” fields (or both). The more specific you can be, the better your search results. It’s possible to do a search on just part of a name, such as first and last initial. Searching for the initials D. P. currently returns 3 results. Searching for J. S. returns 15.
Search results include a full name, office location, email, and phone number. If you need to search again you click the “Search Again?” link at the bottom of the results page.
If you don’t know the name of the person you need to contact but you know the name of the office or department you can use the “Office and Department Directory”. By default it’s located directly below the People Finder.
