The University distinguishes more than 50 affiliations, which have been consolidated into a few broad categories for the Online Directory.
Some people have more than one affiliation at the University. For example, a staff member may also be a student. Searching for such a person will yield results under either the staff or the student search.
Advanced tip: To limit a search, it's advisable to select an affiliation other than "All". You must fill in at least one field in addition to "Affiliation" to perform a search.
