Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac now available to Faculty and Staff. Lab rollout to start tonight.

Faculty can now upgrade their Microsoft installations to the latest release, version 2016.  This will not be a forced upgrade at this time and is in the control of the Faculty member to decide when to move forward.

When your ready to move forward, you will find the individual applications ( Outlook, Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and OneNote ) listed in the Managed Software Center application under the “Software” tab.  The software requires your computer to be on Mac OS X Yosemite 10.x or later and will not show up if you are not on this OS version. read more

OPTION #1     Visiting presenter is not offered an honorarium; just travel, lodging, and hosted meals.
