Is there a way to update a users profile in AD from sharepoint?

Is there a web part available, one that I can develop or any other interface that I could build/use?

Do you mean you don't want to use the native User Profile Export functionality? – Matthew McDermott Feb 8 '13 at 12:52
@MatthewMcDermott I meant I'd like to present one of our HR staff with an interface/web part (Form hosted on SharePoint) to manage any trivial profile changes such as phone numbers and emails. – user7400 Feb 12 '13 at 13:21

Found a great solution on CodePlex to address my need. It works great on our installation of Sharepoint Server 2010 Enterprise Version with SP1.
