About ITS

Information Technology Services

Led by the Chief Information Officer, Information Technology Services (ITS) is Appalachian’s central information technology unit.  ITS develops, supports, and fosters the use of technology to enable essential innovation in research, learning, and administrative processes.  ITS works closely with other campus units, including distributed information technology units to ensure our services, priorities, and policies are developed through strong governance and collaboration with the University community.

Distributed IT

Appalachian State University Library

The Appalachian State University Library is a dynamic partner in the campus and distance learning communities, dedicated to the provision of full and equal access to information and the preservation of our intellectual and cultural heritage. Our collections, portals to information and text, services, and instruction contribute to the campus missions of learning, scholarship, engagement, and effectiveness. Our vision is to broaden the learning experience, to encourage creativity and scholarship at all levels, to deepen the campus engagement with the community and world, and to develop an effective organization that can meet current and future information needs.

Business Systems

The Business Systems Office is responsible for seeing that all university business systems operate in an efficient and effective manner by placing the appropriate management controls into those business systems and by providing state and other reporting agencies with accurate and relevant data on a timely basis.

Center for Academic Excellence

The Center for Academic Excellence is the university's lead teaching and learning resource for faculty, staff, and students. It was formed by combining the staff and resources from Learning Technology Services and Faculty and Academic Development into a single, comprehensive center dedicated to growing excellence in teaching and learning and supporting faculty and student success.

Electronic Student Services

The office of Electronic Student Services provides a wide range of technical services for Appalachian Students, the division of Student Development, and other areas of campus. We also serve to advise the office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Development regarding technical planning and policy for the division.
