The Microsoft Office suite of programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) is used every day by the university community. Microsoft has announced that the suite of programs included in Office 2011 for Mac has reached "end-of-life." To ensure the security of our network, Office 2011 for Mac will be automatically removed from university-owned devices.
Currently, the most up-to-date version is Office 2016 (available for both Mac and Windows computers). Any computer on which 2011 is removed will have this latest-and-greatest Office suite installed automatically. There will be no lag-time between the two versions: As soon as Office 2011 is uninstalled, Office 2016 will be available in a Mac's "Applications" directory.
