Dear faculty, students, and staff,

We will be upgrading the datacenter firewalls the coming Thursday, July 28 starting at 5pm and finishing no later than Friday, July 29 at 1am. You may experience 5 to 10 minute interruptions when connecting to Blackboard and the Exchange email system during this time.

Any email in transit during these short interruptions will be queued and the delivered afterwards. There will be no impact in connecting to any other IT services.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
