About the UF/IFAS Directory

The UF/IFAS Directory system provides directory information on all UF/IFAS employees (faculty, TEAMS, USPS, OPS)  as well as courtesy and affiliated faculty. The directory system is used to: 1)  find employee directory information and job responsibilities; 2) send an email through IFAS-wide Listserv by authorized users;  3) find a unit's directory information and website; 4) provide maps for on-campus units and state-wide facilities; 5) create the printed faculty/TEAMS exempted directory; and 6) send an email to employees in a selected unit. The directory content is maintained by Unit Liaisons.

Use the Advanced Search

If you want to find someone in a unit, the Advanced Search allow you to search for a group of people who meet your search criteria.  First, select unit name you want to search.  Then you may limit your search with employee job responsibilities, and employee type.  For instance, if you want to find all faculty in the Agronomy department, and who have an extension appointment, you would: 1) select the unit name as Agronomy, 2) select the checkbox Faculty in the employee type, and 3) select the checkbox Extension in the Job Responsibilities.  After these criteria are set, click on the Search button to display the search results.  If you choose more than one check box in the employee type or job responsibilities, employees that meet either criteria will be displayed.  For example, if both Extension and Research are selected under job responsibilities, the search results will include all faculty in the unit with either extension or research appointment.
