    • Office 2013 Upgrades Being Rolled Out Automatically

      In an effort to standardize software being used (and supported) across campus in offices and computer labs, users that have not already upgraded to Microsoft Office 2013 will be provided the opportunity. On an ongoing basis, users still running Office versions prior to 2013, will be prompted at login to install Office 2013.

      Click here to see an example of what the installation prompt will look like. 

      The installation process can take up to 30 minutes. If the timing is inconvenient, it can be cancelled. However, at the next login the prompt will reappear, continuing to appear until the installation is completed.
      This process is being implemented by department group. Any user currently running an older version of Office that would prefer to upgrade immediately rather than wait for this process, can contact the IT Help Desk for assistance. Any questions or concerns should be directed to the Help Desk at 573-651-HELP (4357) or helpdesk@semo.edu.

Computing and technology support is offered by the department of Information Technology for the instruction, research, administrative, and public service of the University. Responsibilities include administrative applications, training, consultation, custom programming, e-mail, file and printer sharing, supervision of IT computer labs, and design of the campus local area network.

Telecommunications provides telephone, voicemail, and personal computer installation/maintenance. Additional services include fiber optic and local area network installations, paging, cable TV, closed circuit camera systems, cellular service, and classroom technology equipment.

The Information Technology Department coordinates the compliance with State and Federal legislation and Southeast Missouri State University policy related to electronic and information resources. This includes security risk assessment, disaster recovery, and reporting.
