On Fri., Nov. 1, the University of Cincinnati launched its first-ever employee intranet, named Bearcats Landing, open to all university faculty and staff. Built on the Office 365 platform, this new digital workspace and internal communications channel will provide a common online gateway to facilitate business practices and unify both information sharing and collaboration across the university.
“Bearcats Landing will become an important tool to inform and engage faculty and staff, which will help grow an inclusive university environment. We’re excited to see it launched, and proud that it supports the university’s Next Lives Here strategic direction,” says Kristi Nelson, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost.
UC faculty and staff can access Bearcats Landing at my.uc.edu using any web browser. A link has also been placed at the bottom of UC’s website uc.edu under the header, UC Tools.
“Bearcats Landing provides a platform to enable work efficiencies, and build a sense of community among our many campuses,” adds Bob Ambach, senior vice president for administration and finance. “I look forward to the development of additional sites and the future evolution of our online digital workspace.”
