Getting a Uniqname and Directory Profile—
Faculty on the Dearborn Campus

Human Resources staff on the Dearborn campus can get uniqnames and MComunity Directory profiles for new faculty using the MCommunity Sponsor System. The affiliation listed in the new faculty members directory profile will be "Sponsored Affiliate" initially. Once the person has a uniqname and the hiring process is complete, their directory entry will list their faculty affiliation.

Dearborn faculty can also fill out a form to request a uniqname at the Dearborn ITS Accounts Office.

Dearborn faculty get an MCommunity Directory Profile when they have both a uniqname and a U-M affiliation (whether the affiliation is that of a sponsored affiliate or a faculty member). MCommunity receives nightly data updates from the Dearborn campus.

When a Dearborn faculty member has a uniqname and an MCommunity Directory profile, an Active Directory (UMROOT) account and a U-M Google account are automatically created for them.
