Communication & Collaboration

Scripps Web Operations offers a variety of online mechanisms to help faculty, staff, and students communicate, collaborate, and share their knowledge or research.

The directory is the starting place to find anyone at Scripps, providing email addresses, telephone numbers, office locations, and affiliations. Your title and contact information is pulled from from the UC San Diego campus directory, so any corrections or updates need to be made there. To request changes:

  1. Go to the UC San Diego People Search and search for yourself.
  2. From the Results Detail screen (displays only your information), click “Request Changes to the directory information above”
  3. Login with your Single Sign-On “Business Systems” login. (Note: This is different from your email login. To register for Business Systems, follow the instructions available on Blink.

If you teach, study, or work at Scripps Oceanography, you will likely also have a profile page on the website. By default, these directory profiles only include the same contact information as your directory listing, but you can request additions and updates to your Scripps profile by submitting a photo, research interests, degree information, a brief bio, and link to an external website. Research Topics associations are handled by business offices.
