Uniqnames & Passwords

Uniqname Administrators with the "All-Password Reset" capability are able to reset UMICH (Level-1) passwords for members of the UMICH community who have forgotten them. Any member of the university community can phone the ITS Service Center for a password reset at any time, so only the staff of a limited number of U-M IT departments need and have this capability.
