System Administrator Leadership Team (SALT)

The Systems Administrator Leadership Team (SALT) provides a forum open to all Mason system administrators. A system administrator is defined as the one responsible for the maintenance and configuration of one or more computer servers.

SALT meetings are held regularly on the first Thursday of every month throughout the year. The meetings provide an opportunity for sysadmins to share their ideas, expertise, and best practices, and socialize to build a stronger technical and security-conscientious community. Please check the current schedule of meetings. Agendas and topics will be updated regularly.

System Administrators are encouraged to join the SALT listserv, which will allow access to the myMason organization tool, to receive email announcements about training opportunities, security alerts, threaded discussions with peers, and other security and news pertinent to Mason sysadmins.


The System Administrator Leadership Team (SALT) meets at 10:30 a.m. on the first Thursday of every month, except January, July, and September. Systems administrators can suggest topics for meetings by sending an email to
