Analytical and instructional capabilities, campus security, facilities control, flexible work spaces, virtual and asynchronous instruction, communications and connectivity have all driven the need for IT infrastructure and applications to ensure engaging learning environments are tailored to a wide variety of students, faculty and administrators, across a variety of locations, and that any and all access is secure.
