Information Technology


Information Technology is an ever present part of daily life for students. From the IT Center, to Wireless Internet– Blackboard, Projectors, and Email– technology is clearly a critical component of academics at the UR. Members of SA Government sit on several University technology committees, such as the College Teaching Learning Technology Roundtable (CTLTR) and Information Technology Governance Council (ITGC), and meet regularly with IT Leaders to discuss issues, concerns, and improvements.
