Who represents my technology needs?
Effective Date: December 3, 2018
Great question! Wheaton College has a Technology Governance structure set up so that all the constituents on campus have representation to speak into technology needs. For faculty, this is the Technology Information Resources (TIR) committee, a sub-committee of Faculty Governance. Currently chaired by Dr. Matthew Lundin (Associate Professor of History), this group meets once a month throughout the school year to discuss technology needs as they arise. They also oversee the Academic Technology Grant, discuss plans for classroom maintenance and upgrades, and many other things. If you have a question about technology you are always welcome to contact the AIT Service Desk or the Chief Information and Campus Services Officer, but if you would feel more comfortable speaking with a member of TIR, that would be fine! They love to receive your input, so they can bring your thoughts and concerns to the table for discussion. Read more about TIR here and find out who else is on the committee. In addition, Wheaton College was recently featured in an article about technology governance in the online EDUCAUSE Review—feel free to read through it and learn more.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Academic and Institutional Technology at 630.752.4357 (HELP) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
