The 2016-17 school year is off to a fantastic start! Athletic and academic success has the campus buzzing with excitement. The Office of Information Technology is doing their part to maintain that excitement by finding new and innovative ways to apply technology to the campus environment.
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! The return of students and faculty always brings a lot of enthusiasm and energy to campus. And speaking of energy, Office of Information Technology staff have been working very hard this summer to make sure that all your campus technology experiences will be exceptional this school year.
I hope everyone had a chance to participate in one of the many parent orientation sessions held this summer in the main lobby of Sangren. The enthusiasm of the parents was contagious. If the incoming freshman class has half the energy that their parents have, then WMU is going to have a fantastic 2016-17 academic school year.
I hope everyone had a chance to participate in one of the many parent orientation sessions held this month in the main lobby of Sangren Hall. The enthusiasm of the parents this year was contagious. If the incoming freshman class has half the energy that their parents have, then WMU is going to have a fantastic 2016-17 academic school year. I can't wait! With that in mind, let me share with you the following news and updates from the Office of Information Technology.
As we head into summer I am pleased to share with the WMU community the following technology related news and updates. If you have any questions, comments or concerns I would love to hear from you.
So who is excited that WMU is migrating from the current Webmail Plus email system to W-Exchange, a Microsoft Office 365 solution? Hopefully everyone! I've been using W-Exchange for a month now and I have nothing but high marks for the 60+ member committee who recommended Office 365. I am looking forward to the entire campus being migrated so WMU can fully leverage the collaboration power of this unique Microsoft environment.

February 20 is a day that will long be remembered in Kalamazoo. And, as sad as the events of that day were, it really makes me proud to see so many Kalamazoo residents and WMU students rallying around the "Kalamazoo Strong" theme. The relationship between WMU and the City of Kalamazoo does make for a strong community and it has been very encouraging to see so many people working together to ensure that sad events like those that took place on February 20 are less likely to occur in the future
As we enter spring 2016 semester, the Office of Information Technology is undertaking a big project, the migration of our email system, Webmail Plus to a new system that has been branded as W-Exch
I hope everyone had an excellent winter closure. As spring 2016 semester begins, let me take this opportunity to remind you that the Office of Information Technology is ready, willing and able to partner with you on any and all things technology related.
