Winthrop received some wonderful news coverage today that I
wanted to share with you. A few weeks back, a crew from CNN Money
was on campus to learn more about a pilot security project using
iris scanning that was initiated by the folks in Information
Technology. This technology creates unique scans of an individual’s
eyes that can be used to verify identity. Our pilot project is
exploring appropriate uses for the technology on campus, including
for building security.
CNN Money online report was posted today.
This is fantastic affirmation of our commitment to technology that
truly makes a difference in the lives of our campus community
members. I hope you share my excitement at this national attention.
In coming days, this story may even reach CNN’s television audience,
which would share our leadership in this area with an even greater
number of people.
