VP Letter

From the Desk of the VP

As the semester draws to a close, the University is gearing up to move to a new computer operating system – Windows 10. This upgrade offers many cool new features including a “personal assistant,” Cortana*, and a sleek new web browser, Edge. However, technically speaking, one of greatest benefits is that the infrastructure of this operating system is “future-ready.” In other words, as future upgrades are released, there will be less impact on your day-to-day work. Learn more about Windows 10, what you should do to prepare, and the tentative roll out schedule in this month's issue.

The opportunities for learning and collaboration continue to abound. This month, faculty and staff will participate in Leadercast 2017, the largest international one-day leadership event in the world. As an institution striving for innovative ideas among an engaging and motivating community, we look forward to your ideas and opportunities for professional development that will come from it.

As always, we want to collaborate with you to identify opportunities and provide the campus with helpful and innovative technology resources. Let us know about your initiatives and goals.

Mark Adams
VP of Information Technology
