A Message from the President

Dear Colleagues:

Racially and religiously insensitive language was found on two residential room doors overnight. The Campus Police are conducting a full investigation of the matter to determine if this constitutes a criminal act. Eastern’s Policy on Pluralism and the Connecticut State College and University System’s Policy Regarding Racism and Acts of Intolerance are clear in condemning and forbidding acts of racial and religious harassment.

At Eastern, we are committed to fostering a culture of inclusion and respect for each individual on our campus. Acts of harassment and bigotry run counter to our core values and will not be tolerated. Persons found guilty of such acts shall be adjudicated to the fullest extent possible. If the guilty party is a student, they will be subject to campus judicial proceedings under the Student Code of Conduct.

Such behavior has no place in our society and on our campus. I appeal to all members of the campus community to reject prejudice and hatred, to respect each other, and to report any incidents like this to the Campus Police.

Dr. Elsa M. Núñez
Eastern Connecticut State University
Office of the President

Student File Storage

Dear Students,

This summer Eastern will be retiring the current student network file shares, known as the Z: Drive. The new default file storage system will be Microsoft OneDrive for Business.  ITS will be migrating all student data from the local Z: drives to O365 OneDrive for Business in the Microsoft cloud.  This move will not only provide greater accessibility and more granular recovery, it significantly increases storage for each student by 20,000 times the current allocation.

Additional information will be emailed during the summer and again in the fall as students return to campus. The ITS Help Desk will be available to assist all students. In addition, a series of short informational/tutorial videos on O365 OneDrive for Business are available at

Some advantages of O365 OneDrive:

  • O365 integration provides online editing and collaboration tools for Microsoft Office documents
  • OneDrive will have 5TB of storage, 20,000 times more than the current Z: Drive
  • OneDrive stores documents of nearly any file type
  • Files may be accessed from any location on any device via the Internet

Individual files may be shared with other Eastern students and/or faculty to allow for real-time collaboration/editing.
