iam in a nutshell

Identity and Access Management involves managing the university processes and technology components that identify individuals and provide the correct level of access to resources. 

Your identity at VCU

Your digital identity (e.g. your eID, VCUCard, V-Number, Date of Birth) is your way to digitally say "I am who I say I am" in order to access the VCU environment and beyond. 

The "I am" project involves implementing a new identity and access management system at VCU which will improve the way that identity information flows between the systems that identify you and grant you access.
