Reminder: all UI-owned laptops and tablets must be encrypted by Dec. 31

The Dec. 31 deadline for encrypting all university-owned laptops, tablets, and external storage devices is quickly approaching. Campus IT staff have been working hard on this project, and over 80% of portable devices are now encrypted. However, everyone’s cooperation is needed to achieve 100% compliance by the end of the calendar year, as required by the Board of Regents.

Dear University of Iowa faculty,

We’ve seen the number of mumps cases on campus increase to more than 100.

Health officials are recommending that our students who are younger than 25, who are at the highest risk for mumps, receive a free third dose of the MMR vaccine. It’s an effort to help protect everyone from mumps and its complications, and to reduce the spread of the infection—not only on campus, but across the state and outside Iowa since Thanksgiving break is fast approaching.

Date: 11/06/2015


As a university faculty member you should be aware of communications being directed to our students.
