[Faculty and Staff] Do your colleagues and associates around campus recognize you as the go-to person for help with technology issues? If so, the College of Charleston Division of Information Technology is developing a new program, IT Ambassadors, that might interest you.

The program is designed for technically inclined faculty and staff who would like to receive additional training and communications from IT to be able to assist those in their department when computer questions arise. Please attend one of our information sessions, scheduled for September 4 (10 a.m./2 p.m.) and September 5 (9 a.m.), if you would like to learn more about this opportunity. All information sessions will be held in the Stern Center, Room 409.

Information Technology hosted an Open Forum on April 1, 2015 to provide an overview of the Academic Research Network project and gather campus research needs. The Academic Research Network (ARN) will offer virtual and physical hosting of Linux and Windows servers to College faculty and staff in support of academic research. IT recorded the forum and you can view the recording at http://stream.cofc.edu:8080/~itwebstrategies/academic-research-network-forum-4-1-15.mp4.

If you could not attend this forum and would like to contribute your input, please email the project manager, Andrew Bergstrom.

Academic Research Network: Gathering Your Needs, Shaping the Offering.

As faculty active in research, you have technology needs specific to your research efforts, different from your needs with respect to the classroom. You may require dedicated servers and storage, be collaborating with colleagues in remote locations, or need access to specialized applications. Information Technology is soliciting needs from the College’s research community to help shape the Academic Research Network (ARN) through an open forum.

Academic Research Network Open Forum
Wednesday, April 1st
3:00pm – 4:00pm
Robert Scott Small Building (RSS) Room 131

The Academic Research Network (ARN) will offer virtual and physical hosting of Linux and Windows servers to College faculty and staff in support of academic research. These servers will be centralized in a secure environment separate from the College’s administrative systems and their associated constraints, which will provide the following benefits:

  • Enterprise Quality Environment. Temperature control, battery backups, standby generators and uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) will be maintained to provide the best possible environment for the equipment.
  • Security and Privacy. Each server in the ARN will be isolated and protected from other servers in the battery network. IT will maintain the servers and operating systems with appropriate defenses against malware and other external threats.
  • Easy Access for Local and Remote users. Configuration will promote collaboration with distant colleagues and researchers.
  • 24×7 Availability. The servers in the ARN environment will be available 24 x 7 except during scheduled maintenance or network outages.

This project is in its formative stage. Andrew Bergstrom, the Project Manager, and Tim Albrecht, Server Support Manager, who will start with an overview of the project, intended functionality and timeline.  You’ll be invited to ask questions and share your input. IT will use your input from this needs assessment forum to help shape the overall design and functionality of the Academic Research Network. We hope that you will attend to learn more about this project.

If you cannot attend this forum but would still like to contribute your input, please email the project manager, Andrew Bergstrom.
