MCommunity Directory

MCommunity is a directory of people and groups at the University of Michigan. As an enterprise directory that includes the entire university, it is part of a larger identity management system that provides information on who is and is not a member of the U-M community.

  • Information about people in the directory is available to the public.
  • Group information is available to the U-M community.
  • All current members of the U-M community have profiles in the MCommunity Directory. This includes faculty, staff, students, retirees, alumni, and sponsored affiliates.
  • Information comes from university sources and U-M member personalization choices.
  • Anyone who has a profile in the directory has the ability to create groups in the directory.

Note: Students can check the Office of the Registrar's U-M Student Rights and Student Records page to learn what information about them is considered "directory information."
