Additional Resources for Faculty & Staff
Access to shared files, group mailboxes and other shared resources
Faculty, staff and student employees frequently need access to information stored on a secure network drive, group mailbox, SharePoint site, or within an administrative application like Banner.
- Talk to someone in your department (e.g., supervisor, office manager, the head of the department) to find out what information you need to access. Contact the Help Desk if you need assistance figuring out what to request. It helps if you can provide the name of someone who already has the access you need.
- Ask your supervisor or the head of your department to request this access on your behalf. Again the Help Desk can provide guidance to help you obtain the necessary approvals and access.
- In many cases your supervisor will need to request access for you via email or an eSign webform. You will be notified once your access has been approved and added, and instructions for accessing the information will be provided.
