Student e-Communications Consultation
Please note that ITS has launched a special project website for Student e-Communications. Please refer to this website for all up to date project information, details about the new services, tutorials, FAQs and much more. Thank you.
In November 2009, the CIO initiated community consultation to identify student needs and solutions for email and other institutionally-provided e-communications services. Periodic updates and recommendations can be found on the official project website .
