On July 1, the University of Louisville is joining the Atlantic Coast Conference! Between now and then, UofL Today is bringing you a few tidbits every day about the 14 other ACC schools. Later, we will use this spot for daily morsels of information about UofL.

 

Did you know … Syracuse University, in central New York, has more than 21, 000 total students. The university-owned radio station, WAER, launched the careers of broadcasters Ted Koppel and Bob Costas, and 80 students a semester operate the station. It offers listeners play-by-play broadcasts of all university basketball, football and lacrosse games, as well as news and evening jazz. Click here for more.

Campus-Submitted Announcements

 

Information Technology

1.) Plone 4 deadline extended through December 2014

We understand everyone has been working diligently to meet the July 1 migration deadline. In support of departments experiencing difficulty meeting this goal, IT is extending Plone 3 support. Departments requiring time beyond December must request an exception by contacting Sherry Roark. The university’s Plone 3 environment is reaching end of life and there is an urgent need for this change. IT cannot guarantee the stability of the Plone 3 system and website beyond December.    

Additional Information: Departments needing assistance with creating, editing or migrating a Plone website using an OCM created theme may request assistance from IT Design and Print by contacting Shelia Marable.

Miscellaneous

4.) Green Tip: Travel smart, fly less!

Summer travel season is here, but there are ways to get there without destroying our planet. Flying causes up to 10 times more pollution per passenger-mile than ground-based options. It accounts for 8 percent of UofL’s total carbon footprint. Consider greener, less sardine-like options: video- or teleconference; carpool; take the train or bus (Megabus, Miller and Greyhound all serve Louisville). If you must fly, offset your emissions by investing in local forests through the Appalachian Carbon Partnership.

Additional Information: Zimride – UofL Ridesharing. Book trains through PanAm. Details on alternatives to flying.
