Individuals are permitted to provide comments during the 15-day period.

Zoom to Teams Transition


In March 2020, ITS promptly implemented and introduced Zoom to address the urgent need for a virtual meeting platform for academics and administration. Over time, Microsoft has made substantial investments in advancing their online collaboration platform, Microsoft Teams. Following a thorough examination of budgets and feature comparisons between the two platforms, we will capitalize on our longstanding partnership with Microsoft and adopt the collaboration tool Microsoft Teams. Effective August 12, 2024, we will discontinue the use of Zoom. For more information about the Zoom to Teams transition, please see our page
