A task force of volunteer representatives from the campus community and from the Architecture and Infrastructure Governance Committee (AIC) are working together to understand the calendaring and email service needs on campus in order to best inform future service provider selections. Representatives from the School of Law, the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Fine Arts, Academic Technology Services, the College of Natural Sciences, the McCombs School of Business, the Cockrell School of Engineering and Information Technology Services as well as student representatives have been assembled to review the current enterprise needs for calendaring and email on campus and determine the best approach to provision this service moving forward.
