Coming Soon! An all new RamPort...A team of professionals from Information Technology and Communications and Marketing have been working closely with stakeholders across campus through focus groups and surveys in order to bring you a reimagined RamPort.  In doing so, the project team was able to identify tools and services most frequently used in order to determine which content to include to make this new version more intuitive and user friendly.  This new redesign will allow you to more quickly access the campus tools and services that you already use.  IT will be offering several support sessions after the new RamPort has launched on Saturday, February 18th.  FMI, please visit the project website...

Working together... Although you may see the Environmental Health Safety and Risk Management Office as simply doing a lot of routine health and safety activities, we actually enjoy getting out and collaborating with other departments in order to discover new needs that will keep our campus safe.  Just recently we worked jointly with academic departments to ensure that we have the safest environments possible for our students.  In doing so, we were able to draft and publish a new Chemical Hygiene Plan with updated Safety Training, a new Biosafety Plan with Student Training, and an Institutional Biosafety Committee Policy & Procedure for our research activities.  Do you have ideas that you would like to share?  Please contact us anytime...
