U student wins Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship

Jose Chacon, a political science major, has received the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship from the U.S. Department of State. Chacon was selected from an applicant pool of more than 3,000 students. Chacon will use the scholarship to pursue studies at the University of the Americas in Puebla, Mexico.

The Gilman International Scholarship provides undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens with the financial means to pursue academic studies or internships abroad, with the goal of better preparing them to thrive in a global economy and interdependent world.


A recent upgrade to the university’s authentication provider has necessitated a change to the way users will be logged out of Box and Kronos. When users log out from within the Box or Kronos applications, they will also be logged out of all other CAS-enabled University applications at that time, unless the user is actively using another application in a separate tab. So long as that tab remains open, the user will stay logged in to that particular application. To access subsequent U apps after logging out of Box or Kronos (e.g. CIS), users will simply need to log back in.

Additionally, the current logout screen for Box will be replaced with the common university logout screen.
