Technology should be an enabler.
It should be designed to support the endeavors of the institution – whether that be teaching or learning, research, business functions, or supporting students in their residential experience.
We want to accomplish the work of Wheaton College through the enabling use of technology in a way that is transparent and easy, and that makes sense to our community.
Within this part of the Wheaton College website we hope that you will find the information to support what you're hoping to do while you're here.
