Harassing, threatening, or abusive telephone calls should be reported to the University Police Department (UPD). A formal complaint must be filed with UPD before the Department of Telecommunications can become involved.
Once a complaint is filed, UPD will notify the Department of Telecommunications of the situation. Specific action will be coordinated with UPD and the recipient of the calls. All caller identification information will be supplied directly to UPD for appropriate action.
All telephone, modular messaging and/or line problems should be reported to the Department of Telecommunications. Problems can be reported via:

We currently use Microsoft Security Essentials on campus and recommend the Free Home version that is available online for download for PC’s. For Macs on campus we currently use Sophos Antivirus and recommend the Free Home version that is available online for download as well. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
We have a campus departmental folder for each department allowing all members of the department full access. This folder is meant to allow departments to share or save files that are of importance. These folders are backed up routinely to insure no loss of data. Also, each faculty member has been given a personal share folder that is automatically mapped when they log in to the computer they are using. This allows a faculty member to save data while at their desktop PC, then access it from a classroom podium PC without transporting the data. This folder shows up as the W: drive. These folders are accessible and visible only to the assigned faculty member. This folder is intended to be used for the faculty member’s course work, projects, or information that is not departmental in nature. For more information on the netowrk shares, please click here.
