OIT Information for Emeritus Faculty

Email and Netware accounts

As an emeritus faculty member you may maintain your email, Google drive and Netware (F: drive, G: drive, Helen, Hector) accounts as long as you wish.

Using your email password you may continue to set up an absence message when you are away. (Click on http://oit.williams.edu/help-docs/email/email-auto-reply/ for directions on how to set up the absence message using Williams Email). In addition, your password allows you to use the proxy server to access information only available on campus. For instructions go to http://library.williams.edu/computing/proxy.php.

Student Administration System (PeopleSoft) access

The Registrar’s Office will keep your Student Administration system access enabled for a time, but will likely remove that access during their annual account review process. If you wish to continue your access, please contact the Registrar’s Office. If you keep this access, you also need to keep your Student Administration System password up to date. Passwords expire after 180 days. The system will remind you at login if the password is due to expire within the next 30 days. You can log in and change your password at any time prior to the expiration date. If you log in and the password has expired or if the account is locked, contact the Registrar’s Office for help. If you forget your password, you can use the Forgot My Password link on the login page to have a new one sent to you via email.

Courses in Glow

Courses are maintained in Glow for three years in addition to the current year. You will be able to access any courses you have taught using Glow until they are purged from the system under the normal attrition schedule. The password for Glow is the same as your password for your email.

Daily Messages

Daily Messages are not sent automatically to emeritus faculty. If you want to continue to receive Daily Messages, you will need to sign up by sending an email to [email protected] The entire body of the message should be
SUBSCRIBE DM-FACULTY-L followed by your full name.

OIT Support

Feel free to email the Desktop Systems Department at Desktop, submit a help form from oit.williams.edu/report or call 597-4090 if you need assistance for basic problems. Desktop Systems staff are not able to make house calls or work on personal computers. If you need help with a computer at home, OIT can help you find someone whom you can pay to work on your personal computers privately.

Office Computers

If you maintain an office on campus, OIT will provide you with a “trickle” computer (a computer previously used by someone else or in a computer lab).
