Teaching this Summer?

The Spring Semester may be coming to a close, but that means Summer Sessions are about to begin! If this is the first time you are teaching in Sakai or you need a refresher, please join us for a crash course on Teaching in Sakai on Monday! We’ll be in the House Undergraduate Library.

There will be a Sakai Maintenance Outage this Saturday, May 10th, from 7am until 11am as we move our systems behind a new firewall for enhanced security. Please plan accordingly and contact the ITS Service Desk at (919) 962-HELP if you have any questions. We appreciate your patience!
