Did You Know?

  • ETS is already making preparations for the Autumn 2023 semester, and having a defined list of software needed on Citrix and in COE computing labs will be extremely important.  The list is going to be disseminated to the faculty mailing list this week, so please start thinking about what software you need for AU23 and SP24.  Faculty will work with their ETS liaison to compile the list for their department before the end of this semester.
