IT @ UIC Community has adopted Microsoft Teams


In an effort to better support communication and collaboration for the IT @ UIC Community in today’s modern working environment, Technology Solutions has transitioned away from the REACH email listserv to instead leverage Microsoft Teams as the central channel for the community to share and discuss IT news, updates and information.

Part of Microsoft 365, Teams is an app that helps users stay organized, have conversations, share files, collaborate, and meet virtually - all in one place. Teams integrates with many other tools, including Outlook, SharePoint, and Box, and is available to all UIC students, faculty and staff and is free to download.

As part of a new communications strategy, Technology Solutions has adopted the use of Microsoft Teams to enhance the IT @ UIC Community’s collaborative goals, where members can ask questions, get updates, foster discussion, network, and connect faster and easier!

The IT @ UIC Community Team Heading link

The IT @ UIC Community team in Microsoft Teams was created in 2020 for members of the UIC IT Community to network, ask questions to other IT team members and units; foster meaningful discussion on IT topics; share ideas; and request peer-to-peer support; as well as to share IT news, important announcements, updates or outages. It serves as a hub to build a more collaborative IT Community at UIC.

REACH Listserv Retiring Heading link

To simplify and consolidate the methods for communication and collaboration for the IT Community, the REACH email listserv was retired on April 4, 2022 after serving the IT Community’s communication needs since 1997.

It is important to note that units still have a dedicated and assigned departmental member willing to advise colleagues on IT matters (aka: REACH contact) – this change only applies to the communication medium.
