Virginia Ashley Retirement Celebration

After 30+ years at the University of Mary Washington, Virginia Ashley is retiring. Virginia has been a key member of the Information Technology Department for many years and an amazing colleague, adviser, and friend to all who have had the pleasure of working with her.

Please join us at a reception for Virginia, to thank her for her years of service, and wish her well in retirement.

The reception will be held Tuesday, September 24th at 2 p.m. in the Hurley Center Digital Auditorium.

UMW Hosts the MABUG 2018 Conference in October

UMW is excited to host the MABUG 2018 conference, “It’s Revolutionary,” scheduled to take place October 14-16, 2018 at the Expo Center.

What is MABUG?  The Mid-Atlantic Banner Users Group (MABUG) is an association of colleges and universities in Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, New Jersey, Tennessee, and West Virginia. This group hopes that through communication and sharing, member institutions will maximize the use of  Banner, our enterprise software application, and its related products.

Join us for three days of presentations and informative sessions as well as opportunities to network with Banner users from other universities and to meet with vendor partners.  If you do not have three days, please consider attending or participating in some of the conference.  There are many ways to participate.

We especially need representatives from UMW to present at the conference. Experienced speakers are NOT required.  Presentations are allotted 50 minutes, which can include time for questions.  MABUG presentations in the past have taken many forms: an explanation of good practices or tips; a discussion or sharing of ideas; and a tutorial.

There are lots of ways to show enhancements you have made to techniques, processes and operations related to Banner.

Please follow the link to submit your presentation proposal:


Not interested in presenting? Prefer to work behind the scenes? There are lots of ways to help!  Contact Pam Lowery for volunteer opportunities.
