To All Dickinson Employees:

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. Classroom Windows computers will be upgrade to Windows 10.
• End June-Early July: All EMPLOYEE WINDOWS computers will be upgraded to Microsoft 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.

If you are interested in accessing some training material in advance, please feel free to visit the Microsoft Office Training Portal ( for excellent self-paced training tutorials or contact the Helpdesk at x1000 to schedule one-on-one instruction.
