Thank you to all who helped with IAM Launch!

Effective Date: March 20, 2019

Many hours of hard work went into the planning, preparation, testing and launch of our new Identity and Access Management system.  For years Wheaton College had been using a home-grown system with custom-code created by a former employee.  It was time to upgrade to a more efficient system—particularly one that was more secure. 

This new system offers many advantages, the chief of which is that it is now easier than ever for employees and students to recover their own passwords.  Answering custom questions is a thing of the past and now you can set it up to receive an email or test message with a code in order to recover your password.

A lot of people and departments across campus were invaluable in helping with this project.  AIT particularly wants to thank the following:

Academic Records and Services
Graduate School
Human Resources
Office of the Provost
Undergraduate Admissions

We couldn’t have done it without you!
