Technology Administrators

Our Technology Administrators ensure CLA-OIT and University technical services are living up to the needs and expectations of our faculty and staff.

Since the technologies we use each day are too complicated and too critical to rely on a single person to be available 24x7, we have split the role of yesterday's know-it-all and do-it-all guru.

Technology Administrators focus on consulting, planning, and matching needs to the best technology services available and the Service Desk and field technicians provide support, fixing what's broken and responding to routine requests. CLA-OIT operates as an integrated team, and we all strive to provide you the best services we can possibly can.
