Microsoft Teams to Become Available University-Wide

Friday, June 16, 2023

Microsoft Teams, along with other Microsoft collaboration tools, will be accessible to all university faculty, staff, and students starting July 10, 2023. The app has already been deployed to a few groups of early adopters and everyone in the School of Medicine.

Slack, Zoom, and Google Drive will remain the university’s preferred collaboration platforms. Teams is an additional service for file sharing, chat, and meetings that you may choose to use alongside our current tools.

Why Teams?

As part of the Microsoft 365 ecosystem, Teams seamlessly integrates with Microsoft 365 tools like SharePoint and OneDrive. More importantly, Teams is part of the Affiliate Collaboration Transformation program, a multi-year initiative dedicated to secure information sharing across the university and health care systems.
