Strategic Plan for IT
A Statement from Reid Christenberry, TTU's CIO:
Two years ago, an IT Assessment study was conducted by the University and several recommendations were made, including the hiring of a new Chief Information Officer. Also, the University’s Flight Plan was under development at that time, and this has resulted in several improvements in service in the IT Arena.
Significant investments have been made in stabilizing network services and extending Wi-Fi access in both the residence halls and most of the academic buildings. Currently, plans are underway to deploy a high-end digital media lab for students in the basement of the library, a service desk where students, faculty, and staff can call for support and a “tech spot” where students will be able to bring personally-owned devices and get assistance with these. Also, a new mobile app has been deployed that will include registration capability this fall.
Future plans include expanding the “tech spot” to include retail sales of personal devices and computers. In Academic Affairs, a new Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence has been set up to provide assistance to faculty who want to use technology more effectively. It is now time to develop a multi-year plan that states the future direction of IT for the University that will best support student, faculty and staff success at TTU.
TTU has partnered with Berry-Dunn to create this view to the future of IT on the Tennessee Tech Campus. Please check back here for updates as this process continues.
