New Division Name: Resources for Information, Technology, and Education (RITE)
After nearly a year of planning, research, and most importantly, campus constituent input, we are pleased to announce that Information Services and Systems has been reorganized to better meet the needs of the campus community.
After a thorough review of your feedback, our Organizational Identity Task Force unanimously agreed on a new name for the division: Resources for Information, Technology, and Education, or RITE. The new name best reflects our goal to deliver exemplary service and resources to support the educational mission of the institution.
We are here to help. In the coming weeks, a new self-service option will be added to the RITE website to empower you, our valued colleagues, to request services and track the progress of individual projects. Additionally, the RITE Support Desk has also been reorganized to better serve the campus. Please call our team at 878-4357 (878-HELP) and they will be happy to troubleshoot your issue, address your questions, or connect you with the appropriate partner within our division to ensure timely resolution.
As part of the reorganization, the Institutional Research Office, which previously reported to Academic Affairs, will now work within RITE as a member of our Enterprise Data and Analytics team. We are thrilled to welcome the talented Institutional Research staff to this team!
As you explore the new website and organizational structure, please do not hesitate to contact my office for assistance or clarification. I would be glad to answer your questions. Thank you and we look forward to working together as we move our campus forward.
