Universities across the country are still grappling with the impact of migrating many of their services online this past Spring.COVID-19 - Stay Home

For next Fall, whether campuses open for in-person instruction, or opt for online only instruction, most campuses will need to significantly expand their support of online services for next year.

Because access to online services typically begins when a user logs in to an online service, digital identity management is an important foundation to any expansion of online service delivery.
