Microsoft Office 2016 Rolling Out to All Employee and Classroom Windows and Mac Computers This Summer

To All Dickinson Employees and Students:

User Services will be deploying the latest Microsoft Office suite, Office 2016, to all employee and classroom Windows and Mac computers this summer. This is the tentative schedule for the deployment:

• June and July: All CLASSROOM/LAB WIDNOWS AND MAC computers will be upgraded to Microsoft Office 2016.
• End June-Early July: All EMPLOYEE WINDOWS computers will be upgraded to Microsoft Office 2016.
• Mid-July: All EMPLOYEE MAC computers will be upgraded to Microsoft Office 2016.

Closer to the time, specific dates for the deployments to employee Windows and Mac computers will be announced. Similar to when the campus moved from Office 2010 to 2013 for Windows, and from Office 2007 to 2011 for Mac, the current office suite will be removed and replaced with Office 2016.

Please note that no personal files or folders will be affected and that Microsoft Office 2016 is extremely similar in form and function to Office 2013 for Windows so the learning curve is minimal.

Training opportunities will be available via CLIQ and can be scheduled to meet your needs. If you are interested in accessing some training material in advance, please feel free to visit the Microsoft Office Training Portal (https://officetraining.microsoft.com/) for excellent self-paced training tutorials or contact the Helpdesk at x1000 to schedule one-on-one instruction.

Lastly, Dickinson employees and students may download Microsoft Office 2016 for Windows and/or Mac for free on up to five personal computers by logging into the Office 365 portal via the link at the bottom of the Dickinson website, the Office 365 button in the Dickinson Gateway, or by navigating here: https://portal.office.com/
