Campuswide IT Assessment Project

Campus Technology Needs Survey Reminder

October 4, 2021

Dear Faculty and Staff,

As a reminder, please help us shape the path of technology for AppState by taking a few minutes to complete an IT assessment. The questions within the survey seek to understand your most critical technology needs and whom you rely on to ensure your technology works effectively.

Your input throughout this process is valuable and very much appreciated. More information regarding this assessment can be found on our ITS website at:

Additionally, this semester we are partnering with the Office of Research and the RIEEE and will be holding focus groups scheduled in early November to determine the research drivers of cyberinfrastructure needs.

Research Cyberinfrastructure Sessions are offered Friday, November 5th 1:00-2:30pm and Friday, November 12th 2:00-3:30pm. Please register via the link for each session, at least three days prior to the session you plan to attend so we can plan accordingly.

Thanks for your help!

Tom Van Gilder
