You may have heard the University has signed an agreement with Google to provide Google Apps to students, staff, and faculty including Mail, Docs, Sites, and Calendar. In the move to Google, your e-mail address will not change, and your e-mails will transfer to the new system automatically. Google Calendar will become the primary calendar for the University, replacing UMCal.
For more information, visit the Google Initiative Web site.
Staff units will migrate throughout October with an official transfer to the new Google Calendar for all staff starting Monday, November 1. Each department will be consulted to arrange the most convenient date for transition.
We are working with the consultative committee to set a date for faculty departments and divisions to migrate to Google.
Students will receive invitations to migrate during Spring semester.
