Since IMS does not have access to the FacultyStaffAll listserv and cannot reach all campus as the message below, please feel welcome and encouraged to forward this email to your colleagues across unions.

We are pleased to announce that we have renewed the Adobe site license for university-owned computers on campus. This means that the Adobe Creative Cloud Master Collection (includes Acrobat, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, After Effects, Premier Pro, Fireworks, Flash, Lightroom, and more) is able to be installed on any university-owned computerat no additional cost to you.
If you would like the use of these applications, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of which applications you would like installed on your university-owned computer. Because it is the first week of the semester and technicians are quite busy right now, we ask for your patience with these installations. NOTE: Not all campus computers are capable of running these programs. A technician will work with you to make sure your computer is capable of running this software before installing.
