  • the college’s web presence is lively, and that resources on our web sites are easy to find and easy to use;
  • data is secure, comprehensive, and made useful by turning it into campus intelligence in support of strategic decision making;
  • we anticipate considerable change in skills and specializations necessary to an evolving technology environment by expanding professional development opportunities;
  • we continually seek opportunities such as outsourcing, collaborative purchasing and other partnerships that extend available resources;
  • we actively represent the efforts and ambitions of the IT organization to various campus constituencies so that they are widely understood and enthusiastically supported.
  • we are recognized as an active and open source of general knowledge and special expertise concerning ways of using technology to accomplish the college’s academic work and the daily administration of the campus.

Deleting Large Emails From BardMail

As you may or may not know, many of our daily emails contain attachments which affect the size of the emails, thereby affecting the overall size of your email account. In an effort to free up space on our servers and in your email account (and reduce your quota), we suggest that you follow the instructions in the video below for deleting large emails. This procedure should be done in most if not all of your folders (not just your Inbox) where you can actually delete mail, (not folders where you are storing referential emails.) You may be surprised at  how much space this will free up in your email account and our email servers.
