Google Apps for Education (GAE), a collection of Google's free web-based applications offered ad-free to educational institutions, is now available for UC San Diego academic and administrative IT departments to provision to their faculty, staff, and students.
This rollout is a collaborative effort between Academic Affairs, SIO, and the newly integrated Information Technology Services department (formerly ACT and ACMS) in support of the university's mission for critical teaching, learning, and research. In adherence to HIPAA regulations, the use of Google Apps for Education, for storing PHI, is not supported by UC San Diego Health Sciences.
If you have questions, about GAE, check out the FAQ. If you're interested in how GAE might be used in your own department or unit, talk to your IT department or system administrator.
