  • Reports
    Deb Miller presented the CIRT and LMS reports to the committee. (See Attachment #1).
  • IT Informational Items
    Chris Petrello informed the committee about the initiative start the transition to Windows 10 and Office 2016 on campus computers. Faculty and staff can request the upgrade as of September 1st, 2016. The recommended procedure is to do a full reimaging of the computer to upgrade the OS and Office at the same time.

    Library computers will be transitioned. However, staff and faculty in the Library still have to request the upgrade. ITS is working with the C-techs to identify users to transition.

    Regarding Adobe Acrobat Pro and Adobe Creative Suite, the company changed its licensing policies. As a result, faculty members that currently use and want to continue to use either product need to request an update. This will bring more homogeneity in terms of version which should facilitate service.

    The committee will work on an informational agenda item in the January 2017 meeting.
