University Updates on Coronavirus

WSSU Remote Access and Resource Delivery

The Office of Information Technology wants to make sure you are prepared to access work resources remotely should the need arise. Enabling employees for remote working capability takes time, please go ahead and schedule an appointment as soon as possible using the information below.

Please check this page often for additional resources as we are constantly updating as we adjust to the changing work posture for the university. 

It is recommended that users transfer data from your H & G drives and your laptop to OneDrive for Business – the approved cloud storage of WSSU using the Office 365 Portal . OneDrive provides security and is FERPA & HIPAA compliant.  No other cloud storage repositories are supported for the storage of university data.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is meant to ensure that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as anyone else. This means that your digital communications need to be accessible to people who have disabilities that affect their hearing, vision or physical capacities. 

As an individual responsible for creating or uploading content to digital platforms on behalf of WSSU it is imperative that that content be compliant.  Digital content includes classroom materials posted online, emails, web sites, videos, PDFs, etc. especially when this content is posted on our social media sites and in our learning management systems (Canvas and Brightspace).

Please utilize the following resources to assist you in making your content ADA compliant:
