Welcome to Information Technology Services
Information Technology Services (ITS) provides the college with IT leadership and a broad range of basic and advanced support services. ITS implements new and useful technology tools that provide our end users with accessible education opportunities. We are constantly striving to provide high-quality and courteous services and innovative solutions to enhance the learning environment.
ITS has made substantial strides in the expansion of technology to support the college mission. Hundreds of computers are available to our students throughout the campuses in libraries, computer labs and student common areas. Many of the technical programs require a laptop computer, and the technology infrastructure is built to supply thousands of data ports, along with secured wireless connectivity to almost all areas of the college.
