Faculty Technology Receptions 2016

Manfred Ruddat and Jason Edelstein
Defying the odds, Fred Ruddat, Associate Professor, Emeritus, Department of Ecology and Evolution is selected for an unprecedented third time in the history of the receptions, during the raffle portion of the event. Co-chair Jason Edelstein hides his disbelief admirably.

Campus Wiki Service

Do you wiki?  Do you want to?  IT Services will soon unveil the Campus Wiki Service for the University community. Philip Crandall from IT Services Collaborative Applications will give a demo of the pending University Wiki and solicit your feedback on how users will want to use the system.  Come to the next Get IT Together Scoop and help make the upcoming service work for you and the people you support.

Join us Tuesday, July 20 at 2pm in the first floor conference rooms at 6045 S. Kenwood. As always, we’ll be dishing out the scoops  – with a build-your-own-sundae bar.  All IT professionals on campus are encouraged to attend, but space is limited.
