Microsoft Office 2010

ITS’ staff are in the process of testing Microsoft Office 2010 this summer. The software will be installed on the seminar and public computers on the first floor in the FLITE building and in Business 104 this month. If all goes well, Office 2010 will be included on the Presidential Replacement Computers (PCR) when they are deployed later this year.  A campus wide rollout of Office 2010 is expected sometime during the fall semester.  ZENWorks will be used to deploy Office 2010 to faculty and staff computers.  

Links will be provided on the desktop that will allow users to install Office 2010, Visio, and Project at their convenience. Office 2007 will be uninstalled during this time as well.
