Department of English at Illinois State University

The faculty/staff commons is a password-protected online space containing departmental documents and common university forms. Department committees and ad hoc groups can set up subareas in the commons to manage collaborative projects.

All faculty and staff members should have access to the the commons.

You do not need to use a VPN client to connect to the commons from off campus; however, you must use a PC with at least Windows XP or a Mac with at least OS 10.4.

We also recommend that you use Firefox when using the Commons.

For help setting up a new commons site or if you have trouble connecting, please contact Ryan Gray.
