Beginning Monday, October 23, you will see a few differences in ConnectCarolina if you work with the Student Administration pages. The software for the Student Administration application will be upgraded to the newest version and although most of the changes are behind-the-scenes, you will notice a more muted color palette, wider screen layout, and some alignment changes.  You will still see all of the fields and links that you have today. Why Upgrade? The software upgrade will allow UNC to take advantage of new software features in the future  For example, one of the changes we expect to implement in 2018 is a new look and feel that has fewer cicks. The upgrade ensures UNC will be able to receive continuing vendor support for ConnectCarolina. The updates reduce accessibility barriers that make it difficult for many people with disabilities to use ConnectCarolina.

Plans are underway for the second ConnectCarolina User Conference, a day of sharing and learning more about the systems that we work in everyday: ConnectCarolina, InfoPorte and other University Systems integrated with ConnectCarolina. The event which is open to 600 registrants includes a keynote address, presentations, workshops and panel discussions focusing on how people work in ConnectCarolina every day. Registration will be open in September; but, for now, SAVE THE DATE. The conference is scheduled for Thursday, October 18, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm at the Frank Porter Graham Student Union. We hope to offer twice as many sessions (entry level and advanced level) as the first User Conference hosted in October 2015. Then check out the vendors at the Expo in the Student Union Great Hall. A planning committee comprised of ConnectCarolina and InfoPorte users from across campus met on May 24 to kick-off the planning process. The committee members are leading the efforts to identify session topics and presenters and working together to ensure that the conference is an event to remember. What’s Next? Mark your calendars – October 18, 2018 Click here if you have suggestions for session topics.
