As you may have noticed, there has been a recent increase in phishing attempts against Xavier University. This form of identity theft is commonly targeted at higher-ed institutions, especially during the back to school period.  

Be suspicious of any email that urgently requests you to provide personal or account information in order to "keep" or "renew" your email account. Xavier IT will never request your information in this manner for this purpose.

For more information on how to spot and deal with phishing attempts, please consult the Xavier IT Knowledgebase at https://services.xavier.edu/TDClient/KB/ArticleDet?ID=64
