Identity and Access Management team details2024-06-03T14:31:48-04:00


Identity and Access Management (IAM) is one of the cornerstones of a modern information security program. As more of our systems and applications go online, a solid identity infrastructure forms a key line of defense against the intentions of malicious actors. IAM ensures that the right people get access to the right resources and applications on time. With effective IAM systems and processes in place, everyone can access the tools they need to do their jobs effectively and safely.

The IAM team is comprised of several individuals who are tasked with the development, maintenance and operation of our core identity services. They have a commitment to operational excellence and take seriously their critical role in enabling the mission of the University.
