Since the summer of 2012, over 130,000 students and alumni have successfully migrated to a suite of e-communications and collaboration services offered by the University in partnership with Microsoft Canada. The institutional tools available to most faculty and staff now lag far behind those services. At the direction of the provost, Information and Technology Services has undertaken investigation of extending such Microsoft-based services to our full community. As part of the extensive consultation that is underway, a committee of faculty and staff voices has been established.
New reports available as of September 11th, 2014.
Please refer to this section to view the reports released over the period of the consultation process with Faculty and Staff.
The following questions about the proposed project on faculty and staff e-communications were gathered from the tri-campus town hall meetings, departmental consultations, multiple committee meetings, and feedback received via the proposed project Web site.
