As part of the Red Modernization project, all UIC Red websites were migrated to a cloud-hosted web infrastructure over the 9/3/22 - 9/5/22 weekend. This migration brought a change in the authentication method for password-protected pages on Red websites which requires a one-time adjustment to re-enable authentication for protected pages.
