Beginning in late 2011 and ending in the summer of 2012, a number of campus constituent groups set out to assess the current state of e-mail, calendaring, and collaboration services currently provided to students, faculty and staff, survey the current landscape of service offerings available, and determine the new direction for these services. This page will track progress toward the implementation of the chosen messaging and calendaring services and link to common questions about the services and provide answers about the direction.
Students & Alumni
In the spring of 2012, the undergraduate and graduate student governments surveyed their peers about their preferences for an e-mail and calendaring service to replace CULink and a strong preference for Google Apps for Higher Education emerged. A project was undertaken to make Google Apps available for students and alumni during the 2012-13 academic year.

Faculty, Staff & Retirees
The campus is pursuing Microsoft Office 365 to serve faculty, staff and retiree collaboration needs. Office 365 includes hosted Microsoft Exchange in the Microsoft cloud environment and tools such as Lync, SharePoint, and Office Web Applications. Also, OIT also plans to offer Google Apps Collaborative suite (minus e-mail) to faculty and staff to faciliate social and collaborative online learning. In addition, OIT is pursuing a technical solution that would allow faculty and staff to choose not just the collaborative tool they prefer, but also the e-mail and calendaring platform. However, making plans for the end-of-life of CULink and accommodating the accounts still on that service is the first priority.
