Live in the SLV? Ever wonder what is in your water?

CU Medical Campus, School of Public Health is conducting a study about how you may possibly be exposed to some metals and chemicals in the Four Corner State region. There are many environmental sources of exposure to these metals and chemicals including drinking water.

Any child 3-13 and their parents living in the the SLV are eligible to participate in the study at no cost to you. All we need is a urine sample from the child(ren) participating and a water sample from your home tap water or well water. Children get a prize for participating and parents will gain knowledge of knowing what is in their water as well as exposures in their children.

New Course for Fall: Chaucer

Sex and violence, murder and mayhem, social satire and dirty jokes… the works of Geoffrey Chaucer take on many of the sensational themes we see on TV and in movies today. His characters—such as the Canterbury pilgrims, who attempt to outdo each other by telling stories of romance, murder, intrigue, and even flatulence—appear surprisingly familiar to contemporary audiences. Chaucer’s ability to capture human experience so perceptively and compellingly is just one reason he is considered the Father of English literature. In this course, we will explore some of Chaucer’s most memorable works to understand just how he got that title. No knowledge of Middle English expected. While this course will appeal to English majors, we welcome other majors to consider it. Just contact Dr. MacWilliams at for more information.

Computing Services Maintenance for today, Thursday, July 21, 2016

Beginning at 9:00 PM, we will be applying security patches to several back-end systems. We will also be applying security patches to the campus file server. There will be about 30 minutes in which home and shared directories will not be accessible as the system reboots.

Beginning at 8:00 PM and lasting for roughly 5 hours, the Banner Development (DEVL) system will be down as we perform maintenance on the system.

Computing Services thanks you for your patience and understanding as we perform these critical maintenance activities. As always, if you have any questions, please call the ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at 7741 or contact us via email at

Requester Security Updates

To keep up with the ever-changing world of technology, we are constantly updating and upgrading our software to deliver the highest quality solutions. There are two new security updates coming at the end of July.

Please note that this will not affect users using ConnectAuthenticate.

MySchoolBuilding Requester Login. This update requires each Requester to use a personal password when logging in to submit a request. This will add another layer of security on top of the Submittal Password used on each request form.

Existing Requesters will have a default password assigned to their account, and will simply update the password the first time they log in. For more information and step-by-step instructions, please see the Requester and Getting Started Guides below. The new temporary password is “newuser”. You may go to the following link for more detailed information.
