    By Dr. Philip Baczewski, Senior Director of Academic Computing and User Services and Deputy Chief Information Officer for University Information

    UIT staff spoke to many students, faculty, and staff members on campus during the information gathering phase of our recent strategic planning process. Two recurring themes during those discussions were, "how can I find out what IT services are available at UNT?", and "How can I get help with IT services at UNT?".

    By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Director - Academic Computing Technical Services
