Searching the Corporate Directory on your VoIP Phone

The corporate directory is a directory of all students, faculty, staff and retirees at Illinois State University. It contains only local phone numbers.

Before you begin

Faculty and staff records usually contain on-campus 438 phone numbers. Students’ records may contain 436 phone numbers.

Some people do not have a local phone on record, so their entries do not contain any phone numbers.

Some people, especially students, may have off-campus or long-distance “local” phone numbers.
