Information Technology Services

Projects

Information Technology Services (ITS) utilizes a request process to secure technical resolutions in a timely, efficient and strategic manner and provide increased communications back to requestors. To ensure IT initiatives are aligned with University priorities, the ITS leadership team works in collaboration with University Vice Presidents.

To provide transparency to the campus community, IT projects that have been reviewed, approved and prioritized by the Vice Presidents and are currently being worked on, are listed below.

If you have any questions on any of these projects, please contact the ITS Project Management Office by email at PMO@stcloudstate.edu.
