Stay Informed

OIT understands that technology is vital to your teaching, research and daily work. We are committed to providing the latest information on all security threats, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance to our services and new services being offered. We try to limit the number of bulk emails sent to the campus. Therefore, some of these communication mediums are available online for those interested.
