Good Afternoon Colleagues,

In consideration of the burden our university community is experiencing with recently announced changes due to CoVid-19, Information Technology Services (ITS) has shifted its entire focus to supporting continued university functions for all of our students, faculty, and staff.

In line with efforts to support these WSU needs, the scheduled March 16 Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) implementation for remaining WSU applications will be rescheduled until later this summer, sometime between the August 1 to August 23, 2020 window.

Along with this delayed rollout, ITS is evaluating how best to support remote needs such as expanded VPN support for faculty and staff, and we are working to determine Zoom telecommunications licensing adjustments that may be required.

More information will be provided when available, but please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
