NOTE TO FACULTY WHOSE AWARD MAY INCLUDE SOFTWARE PURCHASE: To ensure that campus IT is operating as efficiently and effectively as possible, the IT Executive Oversight Committee needs to be aware of the technology needs of the campus, including software. To facilitate this process, we are asking the any unit proposing a software system purchase provide technical needs to the committee prior to making the purchase. To make this an easy process, a form has been developed whereby departmental software needs may be identified and submitted to the committee, specifying the purpose of the software, which programs have been examined and what program you would like to purchase. We believe this will improve campus communications and help us better utilize our IT resources. The form can be accessed at https://www.utm.edu/departments/its/softwarerequest.php 1/15/2015
What do you do with a broken toaster? Or with a chair with a wonky leg? Or with a sweater full of moth holes? Toss it? No way! UTM is hosting Repair Café in the Davis Building Spigel Hall on Monday, March 12, from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m. 🛠️⚙️
Get free help fixing your broken items, and more importantly, learn from expert volunteer “fixers” about how to repair them yourself. At Repair Café, you can get help fixing computers, electronics, small appliances, clothes, and fur...niture.
WHO: UTM staff, faculty, and students
WHAT: Repair Café – a global movement that aims to reduce the waste that’s sent to landfill and to change society’s throw-away mindset.
WHERE: William G. Davis Building, Spigel Hall (down the hall from the bookstore)
WHEN: Monday, March 12, from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m.
Reminders to Repair Café visitors:
• All visitors to Repair Café must sign a liability waiver.
• The fixer will work with you to repair your item. You will need to be present throughout the repair process.
• Bring all the accessories of your item if they are available (e.g. cable, manual), which would help with the diagnosis of the problem.
• Bring a part to test if you can (e.g. a working bulb for your lamp, a CD for your CD player, a monitor for your CPU unit).
• Anyone is welcome to visit the Repair Café with or without a broken item. Our fixers can answer your questions and provide advice on how to repair & maintain your item. If you cannot bring your item to Repair Café, it may be helpful to bring a photograph.
