MARCH 13, 2020 — Editor’s note: The following message was sent via email today from Vice President for Information Management and Technology Kendra Ketchum to all faculty and staff:
To ensure you have access to all the technology resources you will need in the weeks to come, I am writing to share some essential information.
If you have any UTSA-owned laptops or tablets, please bring them to campus on Monday, plug them in and make sure they are logged into the network. This will automatically initiate the process of downloading and installing important updates. Because this process may take up to a few hours, please complete these steps as early in the workday as possible. These measures will help ensure that your UTSA-owned devices function appropriately in the event you need to work remotely.
Starting next week, please get in the habit of taking your UTSA-owned laptops and tablets, as well as associated chargers, home with you in the evenings and on weekends.
