2000-2001 Faculty/Staff Directory: In Print and On-line
The 2000-2001 Faculty and Staff Telephone Directory will be delivered to campus the week of November 20. This year's cover features Irvine Auditorium, redesigned and refurbished as part of the Perelman Quadrangle renovation.
Update Your Directory Record On-line, All Year Long
For the first time, faculty and staff were able to update their directory record on-line this year--eliminating a complex and resource-intensive paper-processing step.
Please continue to use the on-line update feature to revise your directory information throughout the year, allowing the University community access to more immediate and accurate information. The web update form is available at www.upenn.edu/directories/dir-update.html. To update your directory record, you must enter your PennNet ID and password. (For more information regarding your PennNet ID and password, go to www.upenn.edu/computing/netid).
New staff may edit their record on-line after they have obtained a PennCard and PennNet ID/password.
Submitting Corrections to the Telephone Directory (Paper Version)
Corrections, omissions, or changes to the 2000-2001 Faculty and Staff Telephone Directory should be submitted via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will issue an update of these changes in January. To order additional copies of the Telephone Directory or inquire about orders send e-mail to email@example.com
New This Year Yellow Pages and Promotions
This year, for the first time, the Telephone Directory offers promotional opportunities to University retailers and other merchants through Yellow Pages and ads. This feature helps to offset the significant expense of the directory, which has been subsidized by the Division of Business Services in past years, and offers an additional information resource for the University community.
The Cover: Irvine Auditorium
Irvine Auditorium was the bequest of William B. Irvine, former City Treasurer of Philadelphia, to the University of Pennsylvania. It was dedicated with the Curtis Sesquicentennial Exposition Organ on May 9, 1929. The building's design was directed by the Horace Trumbauer firm, led by chief designer Julian Abele, the first African-American graduate of Penn's School of Architecture (1902).
