Enterprise E-mail Project
The Enterprise E-mail Project was established, as part of the Unified Communications Program, to address the challenges of the university's current e-mail environment and to deliver a university-wide e-mail and calendaring solution for faculty and staff. The Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) partnered with the Office of Student Life to develop this university-wide system, which will simplify and improve communications, and ultimately support the university's long-term plans for unified communications.
