Office 365

In 2015 MnSCU addressed the challenge of modernizing and unifying disparate email, calendaring and document storage systems. After significant consideration, a Microsoft Office 365 Cloud solution was selected and approved. The system office piloted migrating to Office 365, and in September 2015 staff began connecting to a unified, single tenant, Cloud-based Office 365 environment.

System office and campus IT staff will be collaborating in a "shared service" model to manage Office 365 and the Exchange Active Directory platform and provide user support.
