New Identity Management System

Information Technology & Innovation is pleased to announce the launch of Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM), which went live last month (July, 2019).  MIM allows for effective identity lifecycle management and when fully deployed, will enable us to provision (and deprovision) users with the access rights to the systems they need and rely upon until such time that access is no longer required.  With our initial deployment, we have automated our Student Account creation such that newly enrolled students will now receive an email at the address they provided admissions with a link and instructions on ‘activating’ their student WestConn account. This is the credential needed to access their mail, the Learning Managements System, wireless network and many other applications.  In the past, students would need to visit one of our Campus Computer labs or wait in line at orientation for a lab worker to create their accounts.  MIM not only avoids that hassle but students will now have their accounts available to them well ahead of when they arrive on campus – just one less thing to worry about!
