myCornell retiring at end of June 2014

At the end of June, 2014, my.Cornell.edu will be retired, due to an imbalance between low usage and overall support costs.

We are continuing to work with myCornell representatives (owners of each tab) to move content to other websites—much of the content has already been moved. Links to new info locations are being posted on retired tabs.

At the end of June, we’ll send final notifications to all stakeholders and news outlets to confirm completion of the service retirement.

Please check the IT@Cornell Week in Review, emailed to all IT staff every Friday (archived at itnews.cornell.edu) for updates about this change.

Questions can be sent to cit-hosting@cornell.edu.

Program planning underway for IT Community Conference

Building around a theme of innovation, change, and collaboration in administrative practices, the program committee for the June 2014 IT Community Conference is beginning to establish broad topics for thought-provoking presentations and discussions. These topics include:

  • Student Experience and Engagement
  • Supporting Research Excellence
  • Business Process Redesign (includes business analysis)
  • Leadership and Technical Skills 2020
  • Decision-making

Additional topics may be added.

The expectation is that invited speakers will address these topics from a perspective that is meaningful and challenging to both the IT and administrative communities at Cornell. Some of these topics may be explored in two parts with related afternoon sessions. Others will be repeated so that participants have more than one chance to catch a speaker and discussion

A tentative agenda for the conference is now available, and more information will be added as planning progresses.
