Academic Technology Solutions
Academic Technology Solutions works closely with faculty to facilitate the use of technology in teaching, research, and scholarship. Through close partnerships with the Library, museums, and research computing units across campus, we help faculty explore new ways of approaching academic endeavors using online tools, digital materials, and other technology solutions.
