What is Active Directory?

Active Directory is the background system behind a large portion of our computer systems. Here are some of the features we currently use for any attached computer:

  • Log in anywhere
  • For Staff and Faculty: access to your files and shared folders
  • Continued connection to your printers
  • A software center for installing vetted applications

Having Active Directory allows us to make changes (both large and small) much quicker, more accurately, and more consistently than was possible before.
