UM Community System: Expanding Identity Boundaries

Thursday, January 17 | 10:30AM–11:15AM | Harborside Ballroom E
Session Type: Professional Development

The UM Community System provides the mechanism for establishing UM identities to users outside of our traditional user base, including volunteers, visiting students, emeritus faculty, contractors, etc. In conjunction with levels of assurance, these self-initiated identities can gain immediate access to certain resources and quickly have their privileges elevated through an electronic sponsorship workflow. The presentation will cover the goals of the project, challenges faced, solutions to these challenges, and a demo of the current system.
