Help Desk to Relocate to the Library
To improve service to students, the UIS Help Desk is relocating from the ground floor of the Administration Building to the Clark Memorial Library next week. This convenient new location (Room 118) provides one-stop IT services and Instructional and Administrative Technology services.
Green Eggs and SPAM - SSU Email
SSU email is a vital communication service for University business from on and off-site (Webmail). In terms of managed resources, faculty and staff email is one of the most significant consumers of IT resources and requires an expansive investment in storage technology and human efforts to ensure a consistent quality of service. UIS deploys the Microsoft’s Exchange platform and manages the applications and databases within its base computing environment.
The Campus Wi-Fi network has been upgraded to provide a quality mobile experience for all Shawnee State students, faculty, staff and sponsored guests. The latest technology, faster speeds, and a simpler authentication process keeps you connected to all your mobile devices.
Our new campus Wi-Fi network is called SSUnet and is available in all academic locations, including offices, classrooms, labs, the library, and central campus green spaces.
New and Returning Students are "Getting IT Going"
Connecting to the campus housing (ResNet) or wireless network is an important step for students as they settle into their new student residence. So as new and returning students moved into Shawnee State University student housing on August 16th and 18th for the 2013 – 2014 academic year, UIS was on hand to help students “Connect IT”.
UIS Supports Faculty Orientations
Orientation sessions for new Adjunct and Full-time Faculty held in August are important events to UIS. Orientation marks the beginning of each fall semester when new faculty gets to know the campus and their cohorts. It’s also a great time to get to know SSU-supported technologies for personal and administrative use, class instruction, and is one of the first services UIS offers to new faculty each academic year. Informing faculty about the technology available to them while at SSU and how IT can support their instructional and administrative goals allows UIS to take its first technology step towards helping faculty succeed.
UIS Supports Student Orientations
The student orientations for new students that are scheduled throughout the year are very important events to UIS. This is because it marks the beginning of each student using SSU-supported technology and one of the first services UIS offers to new students.
UIS Visits Evening Computer Labs
UIS staff visits computer labs that have classes scheduled after 5:00 pm during the first week of each semester. The purpose is to help students get connected to their network accounts during class when they need it. By reaching out to both on-campus and commuter students, we can help these individuals get connected to SSU technology immediately.
