Updates from the Office of Technology Resources

A Message from CIO Roger Dixon:

There are several big projects in the works.

We are currently installing wireless and security cameras in the apartments at College Station. We expect this project to be completed this summer.

Implementation of the new “One Card” ID system is underway. We anticipate this new system to be ready the middle of July. We needed to wait until we had one food vendor before consolidating the two previous systems into one. The new system will allow users to use their ID card on all campuses.

We will also be moving our email system to the cloud with Microsoft 365 later this summer. We are planning to have this system operational this August. The new system will give users 25 gigabytes of email storage.

I also wanted to give you an update on the availability of our video conferencing rooms. Click here for a table showing the Distance Education Classrooms we have on our campuses. The rooms highlighted in yellow will not be available until the fall semester. We will be using Life-size Cloud for these DE Classrooms.
