Please contact NYU IT (askit@nyu.edu, 212-998-3333) or NYU Stern IT (helpdesk@stern.nyu.edu, 212-998-0180) for all ZOOM/email/NYU Brightspace/Admin/CapitalIQ issues. Please do not copy/contact me regarding such issues. If NYU/Stern support cannot help you, please contact Student Affairs/Dean's office. All emails are sent to the email address in the NYU Brightspace roster. NYU Brightspace lists @nyu.edu email for some of you and @stern.nyu.edu email for others. This mess is beyond my control. Please contact NYU/Stern support to learn how to read/forward/check spam for @nyu.edu and @stern.nyu.edu accounts. Their instructions are rather poor. Students do not realize that they are logged in as a Stern student and think they are checking their NYU email when they are still checking NYU Stern's email. Please use a new browser to ensure that you check NYU's email. Do not write to Almaris or me if you are not getting Almaris emails sent to the NYU email address because this issue is between NYU and you.
