Dr. Tammie McCoyDr. Tammie McCoy, BSN Department Chair, was named the 2013 Mississippi Community Service Nurse of the Year at this week’s Nightingale Awards Gala in Jackson, Mississippi.

 

Dr. McCoy has been very involved with community service during her entire nursing career.  Last year she served as President of the Mississippi Federation of Women's Clubs, an organization that helps to improve communities through volunteer service. 

A few of the projects Dr. McCoy has been involved with in Mississippi include breast cancer awareness and prevention, raising funds for mammograms, teaching students to read, promoting summer reading programs, proper utilization of seatbelts, and providing immunizations for students. 

Internationally, she has worked to provide immunizations for children in third world countries. 

Dr. McCoy and her fellow club members worked across the state to implement Dr. McCoy's President’s Special Project, "Feeding Fellow Mississippians," which focused on ways to help individuals across their life span have adequate food.  As part of this project she worked with food banks in canned food drives, with local church organizations in feeding initiatives, with schools and weekend backpack programs, and with ways to identify and help Mississippian's with basic food needs. 

During her tenure as state president she supported her fellow club women in their volunteer work with more than 10,745 programs and projects, 637,221 volunteer hours, and $1,576,802 raised with $1,001,198 raised with in-kind donations. 

At the same event, Janice Giallourakis, BSN faculty member, was named a nominee for the Mississippi Faculty Member of the Year. Janice has been a valued faculty member at MUW for thirty years.  Janice will retire this year and will be missed by our college as well as by the entire university.  Her contributions over the years have been significant in the BSN Program, our college, the university, and the community.  She will be greatly missed.

Student NetID Password Update

MUW ITS will be implementing a new password policy for all University Student users starting Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM. The password change will be activated/required upon your next login after the enforcement has been enabled. The change will not lock or force you out if you are actively working on your computer.

If your password already meets the above requirements, you will still have to change your password once the new policy rules are officially enforced. Changing your password before Feb. 28 should be done if you have a security reason to do so, but not in response to jumping ahead of the Password Policy change date/time. Changing your password ahead of time will not negate the requirement to change it again on Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM.

After the new password policy has been enabled, Students will not be able to login to services (Portal, MUWnet WiFi, Office 365, Orgsync, etc…) that use NetID credentials until you change and update your password using the follow criteria.

MUW ITS will never ask for your NetID Password via email.
