Zoom Prompted Updates Coming Nov. 1

Starting Monday, Nov. 1, and moving forward, personal devices using Zoom client versions that are nine months or older will be prompted to update their client. University-owned devices will continue to update regularly.

How will this impact me?

Those prompted will need to update Zoom client as soon as possible, otherwise you will not be able to start a meeting and may experience issues when joining Zoom meetings.

We recommend using the download link provided below prior to Nov. 1 to ensure your Zoom client is up to date.

How can I stay up to date?

What if I have questions or need additional help?

Seeking Faculty to Provide Research Placement for Undergraduate Students

Research-active faculty: The Duquesne Pre-Medical and Health Professions Programs (PMHPP) assist both undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students in becoming the most competitive applicants possible for graduate study. Students in this and other programs of study are seeking exposure to research to help them determine their career path.

Would you be willing to provide a placement for an undergraduate student seeking to gain research experience? Students need experiences during the academic year and summer, both short- or long-term. This can be a nice opportunity for a win-win! Please let Melissa or Kellie know if you would be willing to be placed on a list so that students across the University can contact you directly.
