Project Management

Project Summary

CWU is continuing to improve access to state of the art technology and is pleased to announce that we are moving towards Microsoft Office 365. In a nutshell, Office 365, hosted by Microsoft in the cloud, enables you to stay up-to-date and work wherever you are - on virtually any device.

This move to Office 365 will occur over three phases so keep an eye out for future communications about this initiative.

Phase 1 – Implement Active Directory (requires CWU faculty/staff to join your CWU PC/MAC to the Active Directory network)  

Phase 2 – Replacement of GroupWise with Outlook/Exchange   *Faculty/Staff mailboxes migrated by the end of August 2014 -- Students the first part of September

Phase 3 – Deploy various other services delivered within Office 365 (such as SharePoint, OneDrive, Office Online, etc)
