Weinberg College IT News, Summer 2018

Director's note

 As summer comes to an end, we shift our focus from summer projects to preparing for fall quarter, and in particular to the return of class, the start of new faculty and staff, and other beginning of the year activities.

As was announced early this month, we have had a reduction in the number of staff within our team. While we do not anticipate any major impact on our support operations, we would very much appreciate your patience and assistance as we work to adjust to our new size. We remain committed to providing our community with service and support to help further the mission of the College.

I would also like to welcome a new member to our team: Deborah Libby joins us and will continue her work in support of the College’s website. She has taken the lead on the website redesign project in progress and we very much look forward to working with her on digital content strategies moving forward.
