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.

The 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.
