IT Operations

What we do

Operations is the largest group in Information Technology, which tasks include:

  • Storage system design, implementation and support
  • Data-centers, virtual server clusters, license servers, terminal servers, software packaging and distribution
  • Faculty, staff and computer lab workstation computer provisioning/maintenance
  • Lecture capture and remote meeting technology
  • Classroom technology
  • Residence hall wired/wireless network support
  • Campus printing support and computer lab maintenance

We support all three of the campus' major operating systems (Windows, Linux and MacOS) in a broad array of systems.

Operations accomplishes these tasks with only 20 staff and over 50 student employees. Our staff and students come from all backgrounds, majors and specialties.
