How to use the Stanford/Affiliates View on StanfordWho

StanfordWho, formerly known as Stanford People and Organization Search, is the web application that allows you to search the Stanford directory of faculty, staff, students and sponsored affiliates at Stanford University and the Stanford hospitals to view contact and organization information. StanfordWho displays both a public directory and a restricted Stanford/Affiliates view. You must be logged in with your SUNet ID to search in the Stanford/Affiliates view.

The Stanford/Affiliates view of StanfordWho has a new display, features and functionality.

Some enhancements include:

  • Visibility into your role and department in the organization. Your department(s) appears on your profile, and you see associated departments of anyone you look up in the directory. You can also click on the org chart icon and explore an interactive organization chart.
  • The ability to search the Stanford directory by keyword topics. This allows you to search for Stanford colleagues by area of work or specialty.
  • Your visible Stanford Profiles (Community Academic Profiles, or CAP) photo. For those who do not have a visible Stanford Profile photo, you will see a Stanford stock image.

Note: The web interface view is described on this page. The mobile view interface is looks slightly different but has the same features.
