WIU Partners with Microsoft Home Use Programs for Employees
Western Illinois University faculty, staff, graduate students and teaching assistants may now download specific Microsoft software for just $9.95, thanks to an arrangement between Western's University Technology (uTech) division and the Microsoft Home Use Program.
"We are pleased to offer this program. It is one that the campus has been asking for, and it represents a significant cost advantage for WIU employees who choose to take advantage of this program," said Joe Rives, vice president for the Quad Cities, planning and technology.
Employees may download one copy of one software from each offered:
- Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, SharePoint Workspace, Publisher, Access and InfoPath
