NSF CAREER awards support “early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.”

Volunteers will receive swag and volunteering makes you feel happy.

The Strategic Information Technology Committee approved this decision for a number of reasons – most importantly, recent industry guidance and practice has indicated that phone calls and text messages are vulnerable and not considered secure methods of authentication. There is also a significant cost associated with providing these authentication methods. The phone call option was intended to be a backup or emergency method for using Duo, yet for many, it has become their primary method. The new backup option for Duo authentication will now be completed through the central university help desks (contact information below).
You may choose one of the following options for 2FA, which are used by the majority of campus and U Health users:
Duo mobile app:
- Easiest and fastest method
- Install on a smartphone or tablet (includes Apple, Android, and Windows mobile devices)
- Two options to authenticate:
- Mobile push notification (select “approve” or “deny” from your device’s home screen or Duo notification page — no need to type in a code)
- Type in a passcode (network connectivity is not required for this option)
Duo hardware token:
