UMB Community System

The much anticipated launch of the UMB Community System has arrived! The current eUMB Affiliate System has been retired and the data converted to the UMB Community System.  All new account registrations and modifications of existing accounts will be handled by the UMB Community System. Affiliates in the old system were converted to affiliates in the UMB Community System after close of business on January 27, 2014. 

Since the introduction of centralized identity management and the UMID in early 2005, all enterprise systems have been converted to use this central service.  Users with traditional relationships to UMB - Faculty, Staff, and Students - have an account automatically created for them in this system.  However, due to the complexity and diversity of our university community, there has always been a need to create users that fall outside of the traditional relationships - Affiliates.  Since 2005, these 'affiliated' users were captured and maintained within the eUMB Affiliate System.  Over the years, new needs have developed, business processes have evolved, and the number of Affiliate users has grown considerably.  The UMB Community System was conceived to address the deficiencies of the current eUMB Affiliate System while adding new functionality and streamlining the entire process.

 The types of users included in the UMB Community System:

  • Incoming Employees
  • Emeritus Faculty
  • Visiting/Adjunct Faculty
  • Temporary/Contractual Employees
  • Partner Organization Employees
  • UMMC/UMMS/FPI Employees
  • Library Patrons (HSHSL and Law)
  • Visiting Students (e.g. BCCC)
  • Prospective Students
  • Pre-Directory (2004) Alumni
  • Volunteers
  • Vendors
  • Any other needed users that aren’t captured in eUMB HRMS (Faculty and Staff) or SIMS (Students) that need access to UMB resources.
