I. Goals and Objectives

Goals

    1. Develop a strategic plan for information and instructional technology that emphasizes increased productivity and the effective use of technology throughout the University.
    2. Support the institution’s commitment to excellence in education.
    3. Design a system that will bring academic and administrative computing into the next century.
    4. Insure sufficient administrative support to implement a forward-looking information and instructional technology plan. 

Objectives

    1. Assess the existing campus computing and information technology environment.
    2. Identify where integration and coordination of various technology units may better support the University's mission.
    3. Create and/or strengthen links among the Computing and Telecommunications Technologies Services department or 'CATTS' and other University units to promote achievement of ITSP goals.
    4. Identify the needs and opportunities for distance learning and instructional technology. Plan for its integration into existing and planned facilities.
    5. Identify the current and anticipated technology training needs of the faculty and staff. Develop a plan for providing training. Designate training as mandatory.
    6. Define networking strategies that will improve faculty, staff and student access to technological resources, information databases, library resources, electronic mail, and personal productivity tools for instruction, scholarship, and service.
    7. Implementation of SMS so that support issues do not bog down the spread of network access to student's such as library stations.
    8. Study the possibilities of equipping new and old facilities with modern technology (laboratories, training sites, production facilities, and archiving: tape backup planning for the business office).
    9. Maintain a technological presence accessible to the outside world that provides a positive, aesthetically pleasing and exciting view of the University, i.e., our Web page. Clearly, this is the chief marketing tool for all aspects of University relations, including prospective students, prospective employers, granting agencies, governmental entities and alumni. Continue to make use of available expertise and training opportunities in this regard.
