Some colleges have second thoughts on Gmail

“It’s a missed opportunity if the faculty and staff don’t use the same system as their students,” he said. “They won’t be able to take advantage of the powerful tools that can help transform the way teaching and learning occurs.”

Thomas Conroy, a Yale spokesman, said in an eMail message that IT officials there have “proposed … that student eMail be migrated to Gmail,” but the issue won’t be taken up until the fall, after an advisory committee review is completed.

“The Advisory Committee is composed of faculty from across the university and reaches out to students and student groups in its deliberations,” Conroy wrote.
