Reminder: Upgrade to Office 2010 and 2011


Contributed by Karen Sunderland

ITS would like to remind faculty and staff to upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft Office (version 2010 for Windows and version 2011 for Mac) at their earliest convenience. Older versions of Office will no longer be supported by Information Technology Services as of the end of 2012.

In addition, Microsoft Outlook is part of the Microsoft Office suite of applications, and ITS will begin supporting Outlook in the near future. Outlook will provide an integrated email and calendaring system to the campus community so ITS will be shifting primary support from Thunderbird to Microsoft Outlook over the next year.

The new versions of Office have been available as a free upgrade on college-owned computers since April. New technology renewal computers delivered this fall should already have the latest version of Office installed.

Office 2010 for Windows

Office 2011 for Mac

More information about the transition to Microsoft Outlook for email and calendar will be announced in the coming weeks.
