Project Description

SCOPE: MIT will decrease the number of passwords required to access campus computing applications and resources by expanding the Single Sign On (SSO) service to most all enterprise applications and computers.  Please note that Banner INB/Prod access will not be impacted. When the OneSpelman project is done, each user will have one password to remember for accessing most all enterprise resources.

1. Phase 1: November 20, 2016 Complete 100%

Enhance Wireless Security and Add New Wireless Network Names Implement three new Wireless Network Names (SSIDs) using the IEEE 802.1x standard for authentication. This means that once you've signed your device onto the network, it will automatically join the network every time you come in range. It also means that all of your network traffic will be encrypted, preventing anyone from intercepting it.
  • SpelFS: faculty and staff
  • Spelmanite: students
  • SpelGuest: guests
***WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU? Beginning November 22, you will use the appropriate SSID and your One Spelman credentials (username/900#). You should only need to do this once. All other wireless Network Names will be disabled December 14th.

2. Phase 2: Summer and Fall 2016 Complete 100%

Migrate mySpelman Portal to One Spelman and implement Password Management Effective September 9, the campus community will log into the mySpelman Portal using their One Spelman credentials. The portal is the campus gateway to enterprise applications, resources and communications.


On September 8th at 11:59 p.m., MIT will reset your portal password to your 900#. When you attempt to log into the portal on September 9th with your username and password (your 900#), you will be prompted to reset your password and set up your security questions.

The following information will be needed to set up password recovery if you should forget the answers to your security questions: · Spelman College ID (900#) · Last name · Date of birth (mm/dd/yyyy)

Your non-Spelman email account is referred to as your password recovery email. You will use it to retrieve the instructions for resetting your password if you can't log in and don't know the answers to your security questions.

3. Phase 3: Fall 2016 Complete 40%
