New and Improved Process for eUMB Access Requests

CITS is very excited to announce our new, streamlined process for requesting access to eUMB Financials, HRMS, RAVEN, and eForms.

For years, users requesting access to these systems needed to send their completed access request forms to the IT Help Desk. The Help Desk team would then submit the form into our ImageNow document management system for approval and processing by the appropriate eUMB team. These extra steps could add hours to the process.

The middle step has been removed, allowing users to submit the request directly into ImageNow and bypassing the Help Desk!

Each system – Financials, HRMS, RAVEN, and eForms – has its own request form, and each form must be sent to the appropriate eUMB team:

These addresses are printed on their respective forms. Access requests will no longer be accepted via fax beginning June 1.

If you have any questions, please email help@umaryland.edu.

Seasonal Safety

As we transition from winter to spring, we often become relaxed in our environment and forget some of our regular safety habits. A key factor to personal safety is staying aware of your surroundings and avoiding dangerous people and places. You can increase your safety by doing simple things:

  • Look confident
  • Stay alert
  • Focus on your surroundings
  • Put your phone and headphones away
  • Day and night, walk with a friend or colleague when possible
  • Keep your belongings close to you and never leave your property unattended
  • Use UMB’s safety options listed below

Notably, employing cell phone safety while walking around campus is a good habit to develop or rethink.

It probably comes as no surprise that wearing headphones has the potential to prohibit us from hearing things going on around us, but Dr. Lichenstein, professor of pediatrics at the University of Maryland Medical Center and his colleagues noted “two likely phenomena associated with [cell phone related] injuries and deaths: distraction and sensory deprivation.” Research has actually shown that using headphones poses the threat of increasing our chance of being involved in an accident because we miss auditory cues that we would otherwise hear. We could also become more of a crime target because we are disengaged from our surroundings. And most obviously, criminals see that we have a cell phone available for taking.

GARAGE OPTIONS

Permitted parkers can park in any garage before 9 a.m. and after 4 p.m. Monday – Friday and all day on the weekends. Student specific information is available as well as information for Faulty/Staff.

WALKING AND VAN ESCORTS

UMB provides walking and van escorts.
