Introduction

Academic Year 2006/2007 proved to be another challenging, successful, and exciting year for University Computing.  Our mission is to provide an information technology environment that delivers a seamless learning atmosphere for students, faculty, and staff.  University Computing has a vision to maintain leadership in technology by teamwork and mutual respect, honesty and integrity, and dedication and commitment with University constituents.  We support the WestConn Community through people, technology leadership, service excellence, and a shared vision.  We use technology to deliver information, enhance the student experience, support faculty teaching endeavors, foster collaboration, empower students, faculty, and staff, and advance the reputation of our University.

The University’s use of technology and the sophistication of available technology continue to increase but the responsibilities of University Computing remain the same.  The responsibilities are to provide quality service to the University community, maintain a strong and secure infrastructure, respond to the priority needs of the students, faculty, VPs and President, promote effective and efficient cost control, and collaborate with our sister institutions and system office.

This academic year also ended with the release of our new University Strategic Plan that will guide us into the future.  Work has already begun on how Information Technology (IT) can assist in achieving the goals and sub-goals set forth in the plan.  Once the IT priorities are defined, revisions to the University IT Strategic Plan will occur. The goals and sub-goals need to be re-examined and aligned with the University Strategic Plan.  Exciting times lie ahead of us.

This year, I again wish to thank my University Computing colleagues (full time, UA, student technicians, lab managers and assistants) for their invaluable work. They continue to demonstrate their expertise, dedication, creativity, and a willingness to accept new challenges and learn new technologies. Thank you also to the University community for their continued support, cooperation, and encouragement. Lastly, I would like to thank the Information Technology Committee (ITC) for their dedication and willingness to share ideas and expertise and foster communication at our University.
