Dear Campus Community:

When the Return to Campus Task Force was officially launched on May 26, we committed to keeping the college community apprised of its progress through periodic updates. We are pleased to report that the task force is off to a quick start, focusing on the critical things that we must address across the campus before we can open in the fall. As the co-chairs of the task force steering committee, today we will discuss two important topics—the addition of a 10th subgroup, and further background and context around decisions related to the 2020-21 academic calendar.

Over the next few weeks IT@IC will be pushing out a fix to eliminate the Keychain error that many users of college-owned Apple computers experience as a result of password synchronization issues.  

IT@IC will be deploying NoMAD which will help keep the Mac computer’s login password in sync with your Netpass password, which will eliminate the common Keychain error after an individual changes their Netpass password.  Once NoMAD is installed the initial Mac login screen will change to a light gray background with a large Ithaca College logo.  Please see the NoMAD help guide for more information.
