The mission of the Office of Information Technology (OIT) is to provide optimal infrastructure support for, and expert guidance in the best use of, current and emerging information technologies that assist the educational and administrative activities of our students, faculty and staff.
IT is led by Jenell Sargent, Assistant Vice President of Information Technology (CIO), and is organized into four support areas:

The IT Support Center is staffed by specially-trained students who provide tier-one IT support during business hours.
