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.

NEW Leadership MississippiCOLUMBUS, Miss. -- Thirty-three women from public, private and community colleges will convene on The W’s campus next week to experience a leadership program unlike any effort that has been seen in the state of Mississippi.


At their fingertips, they will have a dream team of state, regional and national leaders who will educate them about ways they can become more involved in public service and the political process. The NEW Leadership residential program runs from May 20-24.

In partnership with the John C. Stennis Center for Public Service, based in Starkville, NEW Leadership Mississippi is a nonpartisan program designed to develop foundational leadership skills for college women who participate. NEW Leadership FacultyThe national program was developed by the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University and now is at 17 universities nationwide.

Students selected for the program will interact with three faculty-in-residence, as well as hear from a variety of women who have excelled in public service roles within Mississippi. Sessions will include exercises that encourage development of skills such as public speaking, conflict resolution, networking and advocacy.

Faculty-in-residence include Nancy Bocskor, president of Arlington, Va.-based The Nancy Bocskor Co.; Carole Leland, international leadership consultant and principal in Leadership Enterprises; Heather McTeer Toney, former mayor of Greenville; and Sally Doty, an MUW alumna and current Mississippi state senator (District 39).

Students also will hear a keynote address by Amy Tuck, a two-term Mississippi lieutenant governor who currently serves as vice president for campus operations at Mississippi State University.

Amy TuckTuck said, “This is an exciting program that will allow young women to interact with others who have been successful in civic roles. It is an excellent way to help prepare the next generation of women leaders.”

Participants will hear from a slate of speakers, moderators and mentors. A trip to Jackson is also planned, where participants will tour the Capitol, have lunch and participate in a panel discussion.

Heading the program are Dr. Bridget Pieschel, director of The W’s Center for Women Research and Public Policy; Kate Brown, director of The W’s Center for Creative Learning; and Brother Rogers, associate director of the Stennis Center for Public Service. All attended the Rutgers program in 2012 to witness its operation firsthand.
