Join CEWiT's new mentor collective

Center of Excellence for Women in Technology launches program to help students, alumnae connect

Google “mentoring benefits” and you’ll get 51 million results. It’s pretty safe to say there’s no denying the benefits of a mentoring relationship, to both the mentor and the mentee.  

That’s why the Center of Excellence for Women in Technology is launching a new mentoring collective for the 2017-18 academic year. The program will match female students with trained IU alumnae mentors based on professional aspirations, common interests, and background. Mentors and mentees meet virtually at least once per month to share, discuss, and connect.

Is your interest piqued? CEWiT is currently recruiting IU women students and alumnae to participate in the program.

D'oh! Your certificate for digitally signed email may be expired

Protect your personal information and check to see if you need to renew

Remember last summer when we urged you to start using digital signatures to secure your email messages? Many of you followed our advice, and we thank you. 

If you created a digital signature before October 3, 2016, your certificate was only good for one year—which means you’ll need to renew it soon. (If you created it after that date, your certificate lasts for three years.)

IUanyWare to unveil new user-friendly design

You’ll get more of an ‘app store’ experience on IU’s streaming software service.

Start saying your goodbyes to the yellow folder icons: later this month, IU’s streaming software service IUanyWare will have a more user-friendly look and feel.

Beginning July 27, simply log in as usual and go to the Apps tab, where you’ll be able to search for your favorite app and add it to your “favorites” tab. Easy peasy. The goal is to create a fluid, consistent design that makes it easier to quickly find what you need.
