What is happening? The University web search tool has been updated and is now live. There are some known temporary issues:
Search results may be incomplete until all data has been indexed.
Only web search has been enabled; People search is not available at this time.
The Web Development team will be working continually over the next several weeks to add more features to search. Also, look out soon for more information on how to optimize website content for improved search results.
What is happening? There will be an emergency security patch update being deployed to all academic support computers. A computer restart will occur to complete the patch install.
When is this happening? The security patch will be deployed on Friday, August 16 at 1:00 a.m.
Why is this happening? To fix a critical security vulnerability in the OS.
What do users need to do?
Users should leave their computer on at the end of the workday to allow the security patch to be installed. Any computer that has been turned off will install the patch and reboot the next time they are turned on.
Laptops should be left in the office and docked overnight if possible.
What is happening? Information Systems & Technology (IST) has launched a website for the Office 365 Employee Email Investigation (see initial announcement below). The new site will offer University employees a central hub for information and resources related to the possible migration of employee email from our on-premise solution to the cloud-based Office 365 environment.
Visit the site to explore the frequently asked questions, review the Information Risk Assessment materials, and most importantly, submit any comments, questions or feedback you may have regarding this work.
What’s next? Broader campus consultations on this potential change, including in-person and online opportunities for feedback and questions, will be scheduled during the fall 2019 term. Additional communications will be shared once the details are finalized.
