About Computing and Information Services
The staff of Computing and Information Services work to provide the University with a robust, secure, and enabling technology environment. This environment is multi-layered, made up of infrastructure, applications, services, and specialized support.
At the most basic level is a massive wired and wireless computing and communications infrastructure. Tens of millions of bytes of data, voice, and video travel this infrastructure every day, carrying the critical academic and administrative business of the University.
On top of this foundational infrastructure lie dozens of computing applications and services. These applications and services, from email to the Human Resources system, from networked storage space to student information systems, allow the campus community to communicate, investigate, collaborate and efficiently conduct the core business functions of the University. The lion's share of CIS funds, resources, and personnel go into maintaining and developing these applications and services and the infrastructure on which they rest.
Another critical aspect of CIS's work is supporting the people that make use this technology, the faculty, students and staff of the University. This support is made up of facilities such as clusters and multi-media labs, personnel such instructional technologists and help desk specialists, and programs such as computer education and departmental computing coordinators. In partnership with the University community CIS works to ensure that technology serves to enhance our work and enrich our shared mission.
