Email Calendar Evaluation Working Group

UWM E-mail/Calendaring Evaluation Working Group


A working group comprised of campus professionals from throughout the University has been chartered to evaluate various options for providing UWM e-mail and calendaring services. Chaired by Simone Conceição, associate professor in the School of Education, the committee includes members of the pantherLINK Steering Committee, the Information Technology Policy Committee (ITPC) and individuals representing other campus stakeholder groups.


The working group’s function is to evaluate and report on service sourcing options for the campus e-mail/calendaring service (currently branded pantherLINK) that are cost-effective and economical, yet meet a basic functional service level for campus. The working group is sponsored by Interim Provost Johannes Britz.
