Campuswide Preparedness for Y2K at Georgetown University

Friday, January 1, 1999


The year 2000 problem has presented both an enormous challenge and a potential opportunity to increase user awareness, education, and responsibility. At Georgetown University, Y2K remediation and education have provided numerous challenges requiring a balance of due diligence and service. GU's University Information Services (UIS) has found that despite the problems and challenges faced in trying to render an entire campus Y2K compliant, choosing to be proactive about the Y2K problem opened doors and created opportunities. Among these was the opportunity to teach the end user more about technology and ensure that the millennium bug would not negatively impact valuable university resources.
