Displays name, phone, web address, location, and mail code.
Displays netid and the date the person left the University.

Why is so little student information displayed?
The results displayed on student searches are limited by a newly revised campus policy implemented by the Office of the Registrar, which writes:
"Primarily in response to student concerns, the campus has limited the amount of information posted from the student record. This is also in keeping with suggested guidelines from the Department of Education which requests that institutions minimize the amount of directory information posted online. This new directory, showing only the name and email address of students, is a model for all campus units to follow. For school officials within the campus community and the broader University of Illinois system, there is an ability to log-in to view complete student directory information."
Who can "login" and what is displayed?
Only Faculty and Staff may login in using their netid to see all of the information in the LDAP database for students, faculty and staff.
