Egencia New Login Process

Contributed by Sheryl Scott on 11/17/17 

View printable version

Effective the week of November 21, 2017, all Egencia clients will soon discover a new login process. Email addresses will replace usernames to log in to the Egencia booking website and mobile app.

It's only good news for you:

1. There is no action required from you. The username to email address change will be automatic and your password will remain unchanged.

2. Email addresses are easier to remember than usernames. With all the credentials we have to memorize, that's one less thing to think about.

3. You will be informed before the change via email. A reminder message will also be displayed on the login screen when you enter your former username instead of your email address.

Recall date: November 10, 2016

An excerpt:

"Message from Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO

"Philosophy is an inspiring discipline as well as an everyday practice that can transform societies. By enabling us to discover the diversity of the intellectual currents in the world, philosophy stimulates intercultural dialogue. By awakening minds to the exercise of thinking and the reasoned confrontation of opinions, philosophy helps to build a more tolerant, more respectful society.

The staff of the Center for LGBT Education, Outreach and Services knows that being back at home can be wonderful, but sometimes stressful. And some students may believe this particular break is a good time to come out to family and friends. Coming out is a highly individual, personal process. Only you can know when and whether it's the right time for you. The basic resources section of the LGBT Center website includes specific resources for you, your family, and friends, about coming out - whether you decide to do so this week, or at any other time of the year that's right for you. The Thanksgiving break resources page includes additional helpful information including how to find the nearest LGBT community center to your home community, national hotline information, and more. Resources are also always available from the LGBT Center, throughout the academic year. Wishing you a safe and happy Thanksgiving break!
