information items

UVU Data migration

UVU is ending its contract with Box and migrating all data to MS OneDrive and SharePoint.

For Google Drive, Dropbox, the S Drive, and Box departmental shares, we will meet with departments prior to July to identify current department-level cloud storage usage to help consolidate university data where possible to OneDrive and SharePoint.

This migration is planned to start in July 2022, and it should be completed by the end of December 2022.


Internal audit - ethicspoint

EthicsPoint is a system that provides individuals the ability to anonymously report concerns. For example, unethical behavior, violations of law or policy, potential conflicts of interest, theft, etc. should be reported.

Reports can be made online at or by phone at 877-228-5401.

Go passwordless

UVU is implementing a new Passwordless authentication option for faculty, staff, and students. Rather than typing a long, complex, hard-to-remember password and using DUO, you can approve a login from your phone. No password is needed. See for details.


If you have any UVU swag that you would like to donate, Douglas is looking for things to put in a care package for a relative who will be a UVU student this fall. If you have a shirt to donate, this person can wear a Medium or Large. Please bring donations to Leisa.
