Moderated Email List

College of Engineering Moderated Email Lists

CAEN moderates “official” and “unofficial” email lists for distribution to regular College of Engineering faculty and staff. The College Administration sets the policies for all list memberships, and the requirements for moderation.

Departmental Moderated Email Service

CAEN’s moderated email service provides College of Engineering administration and departments with a secure way to administer and maintain email lists to communicate University business with faculty, staff, students, and other affiliates.

Faculty, Research or Administrative websites

Web Publishing Service

To support College of Engineering faculty and staff with their website needs, CAEN offers a Web Publishing Service using WordPress for managing content with the goal of allowing you to focus on the content and message that you want to share. This service is available to any faculty, academic or research group that has an affiliation to the College of Engineering. Our Web Publishing service comes ready to go with an Engineering branded template and suite of commonly needed plugins. Users of this service are not able to add their own templates and plug-ins.

Web Hosting Service

For individuals that are academic or research groups affiliated with the College of Engineering, CAEN offers WordPress hosting. Users of this service are responsible for updating and coding the themes and plugins of their sites as well as updating those things if any security issues come up.

CAEN also works with Communications & Marketing to host the College website, news center, and departmental sites hosted through their group. For feedback on the look and feel or content on that website contact Communications & Marketing at engin-web@umich.edu.

College Built Web Applications

Performance Reviews

CAEN, with direction from College HR, built a Performance Review system that is used for staff performance reviews at the College and other schools and colleges that are interested. If you are interested in learning more about the system contact caen@umich.edu.

Transfer Credit and Equivalencies

The Transfer Credit Approval Form (TCAF) is designed for current undergraduate College of Engineering students to have courses pre-approved before their enrollment as a guest student at another college/university.

Departmental Applications

Several web-based applications exist to help faculty, staff, and students in College of Engineering (CoE) departments gain deeper insight into University data, and use it in ways that improve day-to-day productivity. Several examples include the Course Information Center, Online Purchasing System, Visiting Scholars, and Faculty Activity Reports.

A full list of applications are available.

3rd Party Software Support

Salesforce CRM

Salesforce is a cloud-based constituent (or customer) relationship management (CRM) system that the College of Engineering uses to enable easy management and analysis of interactions. The College of Engineering CRM participates in two different collaborative Salesforce campus organizations one focused on students and recruiting and the other focused on alumni. This tool is available to departments and administrative units. For more information on how to get started with Salesforce email caen@umich.edu.

Faculty Search

The University of Michigan licenses use of Interfolio’s By Committee tool for faculty hiring and searches.  To get started with creating an application and review site for your open faculty position contact caen@umich.edu.

Google App Scripting

As many of our administrative units utilize the Google Workspace tools, CAEN can help automate some processes by creating custom app scripts. To see if your use case is a good fit for this, contact caen@umich.edu.
