As a reminder to everyone, I am passing along some information I received from Deborah Richie at the Graduate College while we were working on the CB Block grant.
The graduate College will help finance recruitment visits to a department for minority students. Please see the information below.
[This is was an informational email sent to all DVM students regarding CVM-AD accounts]
Currently, the majority of DVM students are utilizing their UIUC campus ad accounts to access workstations throughout the college by selecting UIUC from the drop down menu instead of CVM-AD. Your campus UIUC ad account does allow you to logon to the workstations and release print jobs in the CVM computer labs but does not grant the same access as your CVM-AD account.
